SAN DIEGO (June 01, 2013) U.S. Navy officers, along with veterans, gathered for a photo opportunity during the 71st Battle of Midway commemoration ceremony. The Battle of Midway took place June 4-7, 1942, in which U.S. Navy carrier strike forces prevented the Japanese from capturing control of Midway Island in the Pacific. The victory proved to be a pivotal point of World War II and is an important marker in naval heritage. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist Third Class Bradley J. Gee/Released)
