I have two main sources for the information on this page. They are OPNAVNOTE 1650 and the USS Midway 1992 decommissioning ceremony program. Neither has very much detail on the awards Midway received throughout her career, but the chart below shows a good representation of them. If you are looking to check on your own awards, please scroll down to the bottom of this page for information on how to find them.
Please do not ask me to check awards for you.
The information on this page is the full extent I can go on helping anyone.
