Please join us on September 18, 2019 as we welcome RADM Mac McLaughlin, USN (Ret.), USNA 1972.

The USS Midway arrived in San Diego in January, 2004, following a 10 year battle to gain approval from the Navy, Port and Coastal Commission. Midway opened its brow to the public in June 2004, and has since become the most visited historic ship in the world. Over 1 million guests come aboard this tribute to San Diego’s proud Navy heritage annually, and they host over 250 special events and 400 military ceremonies.

Mac McLaughlin is President & Chief Executive Officer of the USS Midway Museum. He was hired as the Chief Operating Officer in December 2003, one month prior to the Midway’s arrival in San Diego and has been the chief executive throughout the building of the Museum.

Prior to joining the Midway, Mac retired from the Navy as a Rear Admiral in August 2003. During his career as a Naval Aviator, he served as a Commanding Officer of a helicopter squadron and Naval Air Station. He served two tours of duty in the Pentagon on the Chief of Naval Operations Staff and served Flag tours as Commander, Naval Air Reserve Force and Naval Reserve Forces Command.

Mac graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1972 where he was an All-American and Captain of the track team. He holds a Masters Degree in Public Administration from Troy State University. He is married to the former Norah Anne Flynn of Chula Vista and they have two children, Kathleen and Stephen.
