  1. I appreciate this informative website. I was researching a photo of my father with a young gooney bird, and this site was most helpful to me! I wasn’t able to post the photo, but I do intend to include it in the photo gallery I am creating for the republication of Dad’s memoir ( 20 Years in the Secret Service: My Life with Five Presidents by Rufus W. Youngblood.) Dad was traveling with President Nixon in June of 1969 when Nixon met Van Thieu at Midway. Anyway, thanks for your site!!!

    1. I’m so glad to hear. Thank you for stopping by. If you would like to write a story about your dad or his experience I’d be glad to post it here on the website. 🙂

    2. There are a lot of us that served there during the Cold War if memory serves me there were two squadrons of Lockheed tri stars (Willy Victor’s) a com station on Easter island and a full station for destroyers the necular weapons compound and the units to support them. I believe the total with dependents was about 3,000.

  2. Was stationed on Midway for 9 months in 1981 to 82. Beautiful place not much to do. Drank a lot of beer. You site brings back a lot of memories.
    Thanks
