"There are so many rewards that you get when you volunteer that it is hard to distinguish them....from meeting great people from all over the world, to watching the glow of discovery in kids when they climb into a cockpit. And then there is just the fun of being with a great group of people who volunteer and work together on the ship." -Midway Volunteer
