Not during the battle of Midway. It was later, 1944 or 1945, I believe... September 1944 in an attack on Chichijima.

Gerald Ford also served on carriers in the Pacific during WW II, but I'm not sure if he was involved in combat or not.

Oh hell yeah Ford was involved in combat. He was aboard the USS Monteray, which saw LOTS of action.

Nixon was in the Navy during WW II, but I don't think that he saw combat. Nope. He was

I believe Lyndon Johnson was also in the Navy, but I don't know what his status was.
