The USS Midway first set sail in 1945 with thousands of young men on board. By the time it made its final return to port in 1992, more than 220,000 Americans had served on the carrier. During those years, the crew—whose average age was nineteen—witnessed significant world affairs, such as Cold War espionage missions, confrontations with Mao Tse-Tung, and the liberation of Kuwait.
