"Gradually, and nearly by instinct, we were able to decipher first a few words and then a few more, and then our ability to understand the Japanese code grew to the point that we were able to anticipate the Japanese moves into the Coral Sea before the naval battle there; and then we were able to predict the Japanese moves just before the huge Battle of Midway", Fox said.

"After Pearl Harbor, the US Navy was significantly hurt because so many ships were damaged", Roche said.

This weekend, we remember the Battle of Midway in Word War II. This event will be open to the public.

Seating will be provided and parking is available at the 25th street municipal parking garage at 336 25th street for $2.00 per hour.

The guest of honor for the commemoration will be Captain (Retired) Dexter Rumsey, a veteran of the Battle of Midway who flew patrol aircraft out of the French Frigate Shoals, 560 miles northwest of Honolulu.

Doctor Timothy Orr, Associate Professor of Military History at ODU, is the featured speaker. Orr, and his wife Laura, have authored several books on the Battle of Midway and are considered subject matter experts on both the Battle of Midway and World War II. The event is hosted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
