The Battle of Midway

On 26 March 2014 at the Kornblau Alumni Center Professor Timothy Orr discussed his ongoing research on the Battle of Midway, which included the story of Jack "Dusty" Kleiss, a dive bomber pilot from World War II who spent 28 years as a member of the U.S. Navy. The program included a discussion of Kleiss's unique three-decade naval career and offered guests insight into the world of World War II naval aviators.
