THE MIDWAY VETERANS OF NO RIGHT TO WIN:
PETER L. NEWBERG
the 64th BOM anniversary commemoration in San Francisco, 2006.
Peter Newberg was an electrician’s mate aboard USS
Yorktown (CV-5) during both the battles of the Coral Sea and at Midway. His primary contribution to No
Right to Win was as a witness to one of the more bizarre occurrences in
either battle, when a flight of Japanese aircraft confused Yorktown for
their own carrier in the Coral Sea and nearly landed on it (pages 21-22).
Newberg has been instrumental in sustaining the memory
of CV-5 through the years as an active supporter of the ship’s veterans
association. The Yorktown CV-5 Club maintains a large roster and still meets
annually for a grand reunion.
