USS MIDWAY heading out for operations off the California coast December 1958
A naval fighting ship is one of the most complicated and sophisticated pieces of technology in
the world and Midway was no exception. After a two year $55,000.000 overhaul, sailing out
under the Golden Gate bridge became a common event while Midway and her crew were getting
the "kinks" out and coming together as a fine tuned "ship of the line". Endless drills and long
hours were needed to put Midway in shape to meet her operational needs. It was exciting and
yet sad to sail under "the bridge" going out to sea but it was also a great sight to see those
golden towers on the way back in from operations. Many a "heart was lost" in the San Francisco
Bay area. What a great liberty port.
