What an interesting story started today.
I was just 6 years old and had no idea I too would become a part of the longest "War" this country ever endured, the Cold War. I entered service during one of the "Hot" periods, Viet Nam.
But, enough about me. I wish to share the story and appropriately, I think the Cold War Museum is the place to tell it.
I say this for the Museum would not exist without Powers' son, Francis Gary Powers, Jr.

Read and enjoy.

Thanks to the Cold War Museum for the link to share this story.
