71st Anniversary of the Battle of Midway

It was the 71st Anniversary of the Battle of Midway this year.  We didn't have anyone fly in for this one, but we have really only had big ceremonies on the 5 year marks.  We had most of the island population out, as we did the week before on Memorial Day.  There wasn't that much else going on this week.  Without volunteers and visitors, all we do is work, and I try not to get too detailed about that.  Just the interesting stuff.
John Klavitter says a few words at the Battle of Midway Memorial on June 4.

 Sam made a few more flower arrangements for the memorial.

 I've been seeing the Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins quite a bit lately on the trips to and from Eastern Island.
 This Masked booby was sitting on a nest on Eastern Island.  There are only about 2 or 3 nests a year at Midway.

 Another building shot.  This is the old Delta Barracks by the dining facility.

It's been cloudy a lot lately, so the sunsets over North Beach are nice when the clouds break a little.
