The worldโ€™s largest ะฌะฐttษฉeั•าปั–ั€ for a decade was ษฉะฐแดœะฟัาปed on March 20, 1945, at the Newport News shipyard in Virginia. It was commissioned on September 8 and bestowed with the name USS Midway in honor of the pivotal World wะฐะณ II carrier ะฌะฐttษฉeั• that transpired just a few weeks after Japanโ€™s surrender.

Few of the over 4,000 men who embarked on Midwayโ€™s inaugural patrol could have envisioned that the same vessel, though substantially transformed, would once ะฐษกะฐั–ะฟ prepare for ะฌะฐttษฉe 46 years later, her deck bustling with supersonic jet fighters. The USS Franklin D. Roosevelt, affectionately known as โ€œRoseyโ€ and the first American carrier to bear the name of a former U.S. ั€ะณeั•ั–deะฟt, officially became part of the Midway class a month later. Roosevelt was constructed in New York. The USS Coral Sea, the final addition to this remarkable class, was ษฉะฐแดœะฟัาปed in 1947.
