Battle Group Alfa, Persian Gulf, 1990 - NS024143 - Chester Morris, of USS Midway (CV-41) Crew Member 1962-65.

 

“The product of the Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Company, she was the lead ship of three 45,000-ton Midway class CVBs, followed by USS Franklin D. Roosevelt, CVB-42 and USS Coral Sea, CVB-43. Two additional ships were canceled. Midway's keel was laid down on October 27, 1943. The Midway class hull arrangement was modeled on the canceled Montana class battleships and was a new, much larger design intended to correct certain problems in the Essex class design. They had armored flight decks, requiring a much larger hull and lower freeboard, to reduce top weight. They also carried a very heavy AA battery of 5/54 weapons. The armor requirement was originally meant to counter 8" cruiser gunfire, but by the time the ships were laid down the focus had shifted to defending against aircraft attack” (Ref. 1082).

 

The EQNEEDF presents the largest Historical Report on USS Midway (CV-41), former CVA & CVB ever before  compiled and is based on Command History Reports, presented as a Time Line, focusing on date accuracy and individual stand alone sentences and paragraphs. From this report, many summarized Books will be written by Authors and Midway Volumes created by the EQNEEDF, Bruce Wayne Henion, presented hereto, comprise two web sites and four 700 to 800-page Books.
