Here's What We're Working On

Since its inception in 1992, the International Midway Memorial Foundation (IMMF) has had as its primary goal to preserve the memory of the Battle of Midway. The Foundation was started to correct a relative lack of public knowledge about the Battle, which is no less an important historical event than the bombing of Pearl Harbor, itself a very well-known event of World War II. Indeed, one could argue that the American victory at the Battle of Midway not only guaranteed American victory in the Pacific Theater of WWII, but of WWII in its entirety.

Perhaps the most important and far-reaching actions taken by the Foundation over the years have been those taken in the United States Congress, and are directed at preserving both the memory of the Battle, as well as the historical aspects of Midway Atoll itself.
