Mighty Men Are the Midgetts

Record #:
On July 2, 1972, Morehead City, N.C. will celebrate “Midgett Day”, sponsored by the U.S. Coast Guard, to honor the Midgett family and their tradition of coastal lifesaving that has spanned nearly 100 years, producing more than 150 Coast Guard careers and resulting in seven Gold and three Silver Lifesaving Medals, our nation's highest award for saving a life. The Midgett family's tradition of service to coastal North Carolina pre-dates the Coast Guard and includes meritorious service in its predecessor, the U.S. Lifesaving Service.
