Cold War museum tour, American Artifacts

Post by 72 usmc »

On C Span 3 this morning they had a 54 min tour of the Cold war museum with some of Power's stuff by his son. This was filmed on 21 Aug 2018.
It was on C Span 3, A H American History TV, American Artifacts. Worth a watch. Lots of goodies to view a fantastic museum.
Founder Gary Powers, Jr. gave a tour of the Cold War Museum in Warrenton, Virginia, built on a former U.S. Army communication base that was used by the National Security Agency, CIA, and Army intelligence during the Cold War. Mr. Powers told the story of the Cold War through artifacts and photographs, and he also told the story of his father, Francis Gary Powers, whose U-2 spy plane was shot down over the Soviet Union on May 1, 1960.
