“Today we say goodbye to a proud warrior. As we leave, each of us will take our members of [USS} Midway with us...you guys were the 'Magic.' It was a privilege to sail with you.”
XO John Schork quoted in Midway Magic, An Oral History of America's Legendary Aircraft Carrier

“She tells stories of working beside
her father, cleaning out fence rows
with his sling blade and hoe. Her stories
help me to see, as we work together,
that history is being made as it gets told.
Passed on as it passes by.”
Eric Overby, Journey
