Midway May Open to Tourism

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is drafting a plan to allow regular visits to Midway Atoll on a limited basis. The visits could possibly begin in the summer of 2007. Right now the only way for the public to get to the island is to ride with a government worker, get on a cruise ship in Asia, or volunteer to do environmental work for three months. The World War II Battle of Midway is known as "the turning point of the Pacific". Marine aviator Captain Richard Fleming was posthumously awarded the medal of honor for his participation during this battle.
