Francis Gary Powers Jr. dishes on his dad, the famed U-2 pilot, June 9 at Cold War Museum he founded at Vint Hill

Published

on

Francis Gary Powers

Spy Pilot” is the engaging name of a new book.

Bridge of Spies” was a recent movie at Winchester’s Alamo Theater.

Francis Gary Powers is the literal hero of both.

Francis Gary Powers, Jr. of Richmond is the son and author.

Carol and Malcolm Barr, Jr. of Front Royal and Gloucester. Va., are cousins of the two Powers. Both Barr Jr. and Francis Gary Powers coincidentally had similar, interrupted, military careers. Both served in the U.S. Air Force. Both were intelligence specialists. Barr served in Iraq; Powers flew U-2s.

On June 9, Powers Jr., will meet his kinfolk, one of them for the first time, at the Cold War Museum, Vint Hill, near Gainesville, where he will discuss his book, his hero dad, and the museum he founded.

And we all know, don’t we, that Francis Gary Powers piloted a U-2 spy plane over the Soviet Union in 1960, was shot down, imprisoned, released in a spy swap in 1962, thus ending one of the biggest international incidents of any war in recent history.

Except that it didn’t end there. A cloud of suspicion lingered over Powers until his untimely death in a helicopter crash in California in 1977. “Powers should have done this (taken a poison pill), Powers should have done that (blown up the U-2),” some were saying.

It has taken Gary Powers, the son, more than 40 years to complete, along with co-author Keith Dunnavant, the definitive account of the famous Cold War incident proving that his father acted honorably through a trying ordeal while serving his country. In other words, he was doing, for the CIA, as he was told.

The book, “Spy Pilot,” is billed as a biography. To me, it reads like a novel. It is riveting throughout, and is impeccably researched. Gary Powers, exhibiting extraordinary patience in dealing with bureaucrats, mainly in the United States, and including a director of our Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), but also in the Soviet Union, to set the record straight.

His dad, it can truthfully be said, is and was a hero from the get-go, and his son now has thousands of documents to prove it.

Francis Gary Powers and Francis Gary Powers Jr.

In an unlikely Foreword, unlikely to me, anyway, Sergei Khrushchev, son of the president of the Soviet Union, Nikita Khrushchev, who effectively jailed Francis Gary Powers for espionage, said of Gary the Younger: “I have watched Francis Gary Powers Jr. work tirelessly to honor and preserve the memory of his father, an ordinary American who was caught up in extraordinary circumstances. I, too, have made great efforts to honor and preserve the legacy of my father…”

Khrushchev was credited with helping avert nuclear disaster while working with American presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy, moving the two super powers toward “peaceful coexistence.”

Sergei and Gary became friends.

While at the CIA in Langley in 2009, Carol paused at the Francis Gary Powers exhibit in the main building’s small museum, saluting its heroes of the past. “My cousin,” she murmured to our retiring host. “I never knew him growing up but knew who he was later. I was 20 and worked in Washington when he crashed and also when he came home.” The cousins lived a few miles from each other in Southwest Virginia, she in Coeburn, he in Pound.

Hollywood actor Robert Conrad, a Powers family friend, said of the U-2 pilot: “Francis Gary Powers was a patriot who got a raw deal, and his son has devoted his life to revealing the truth.”

Gary will discuss his book in detail on Sunday afternoon, June 9 from 2-4 p.m. If you don’t make the relatively short trip to Vint Hill, you may buy “Spy Pilot” by going to Prometheusbooks.com

For tickets to the Cold War Museum, visit: Spy Pilot: The Truth About U-2 Pilot Francis Gary Powers

The Museum is located at Vint Hill, a former top secret intelligence base. The address is 7172 Lineweaver Rd., Vint Hill, 20187, next to Vint Hill Craft Winery and across the parking lot from Old Bust Head Brewery.

Biography on Francis Gary Powers, Jr.

Born June 5, 1965, in Burbank, California, he is the son of Francis Gary and Claudia “Sue” Powers. Gary holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Philosophy from California State University, Los Angeles, and a Master’s Degree in Public Administration / Certification in Non-profit Management from George Mason University (GMU), Fairfax, Virginia. He graduated in 2019 with his Master’s Degree in U.S. History from Adams State University, Alamosa, CO.

Gary is the Founder and Chairman Emeritus of The Cold War Museum, a 501(c) (3) charity located at Vint Hill, VA 45 minutes west of Washington, DC. He founded the museum in 1996 to honor Cold War veterans, preserve Cold War history, and educate future generations about this time period. As Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee for the Cold War Theme Study he works with the National Park Service and leading Cold War experts to identify historic Cold War sites for commemorating, interpreting, and preservation. Recently, he consulted for a Steven Spielberg Cold War thriller, Bridge of Spies, about James Donovan who brokered the 1962 spy exchange between KGB spy Rudolph Abel and CIA U-2 pilot Francis Gary Powers, Sr.

Gary is the author of Letters from a Soviet Prison (2017) and Spy Pilot (2019) which both help to dispel the misinformation surrounding the U-2 Incident. He is a Board Member of the Strategic Air Command and Aerospace Museum near Omaha, NE and an Honorary Board Member of the International Spy Museum in Washington, DC. Because of his efforts to honor Cold War veterans the Junior Chamber of Commerce selected him as one of the “Ten Outstanding Young Americans” for 2002. Gary lectures internationally and appears regularly on C-SPAN, the History, Discovery, and A&E Channels. He is married and has one son.

Warren Coalition’s HALO Read Kick-Off a success

Published

on

The Warren Coalition held the HALO (Help All Little Ones) Read Kick-Off event on Sunday, November 22nd, near Fantasy Land playground. Adorned with train tracks and featuring safe, socially-distanced activities, the event was the first opportunity for the youngest children of Warren County to sign up for free books.

The Warren Coalition’s HALO Read program is an affiliate of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. The Imagination Library mails free books to registered children, ages 0-4. The goal of the program is to develop a life-long love of reading.

“We were blessed with good weather and a great group of volunteers who read books to the children, played games with them, and handed out coloring books,” said Joyce Jenkins-Wimmer, the HALO Read coordinator. “It was a strong start for a brand-new program. We look forward to growing it throughout the next year.”

Families can still register for HALO Read. Registration forms will be distributed at pre-schools, churches, and other venues around the county. A registration form may be obtained from the Warren County Community Center, located at 538 Villa Avenue, Front Royal, VA. It may also be downloaded here.

HALO Read is administered by the Warren Coalition, in partnership with Warren County Public Schools and WHAT MATTERS. The Warren Coalition thanks the Founding Sponsors of the HALO Read program, including American Woodmark, Windcrest Foundation, and the Middleburg Library Advisory Board. In addition to these, Rotary District 7570 provided a collaborative district grant in partnership with the Rotary Club of the Northern Shenandoah Valley, Rotary Club of Warren County and Rotary Club of Front Royal. The Rotary grant will sponsor 100 newborns through the entire five-year program, while also providing literacy materials to the Front Royal Light up Academy and Maisha Home for Children in Uganda. Many generous individual donors have contributed as well.

Warren Coalition is a nonprofit agency established in 1994 to help fill the gaps in health care and substance abuse awareness to the community. The Coalition began under the guidance of Warren Memorial Hospital as an outreach project, but it has since grown and was incorporated in 2001.  The office is currently located in the Warren County Community Center.  Their mission is to make Warren County a safe, healthy, and drug free community through many programs and in collaboration with 15+ member agencies.

Since launching in 1995, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library has become the preeminent early childhood book gifting program in the world. The flagship program of The Dollywood Foundation has gifted well over 140 million free books in Australia, Canada, The Republic of Ireland, United Kingdom and the United States. The Imagination Library mails more than 1.7 million high-quality, age-appropriate books each month to registered children from birth to age five. Dolly envisioned creating a lifelong love of reading, inspiring them to dream. The impact of the program has been widely researched and results suggest positive increases in key early childhood literacy metrics. Penguin Random House is the exclusive publisher for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. For more information, please visit imaginationlibrary.com.

Belle Grove decorated for the holidays and open for touring December 4-30, 2020

Published

on

Belle Grove will host, for the first time, the Kris Kringle Outdoor Market on Saturday, December 5, 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. and Sunday, December 6, 1-5 p.m. It will have local artisan and craft vendors, socially distanced in the upper level of the Beverley B. Shoemaker Welcome Center and around the property. Masks will be required for everyone 5 and older both indoors and outside (unless eating or drinking). There will also be Storytime with Santa on the front lawn. Food will be sold by Shaffer’s BBQ Food Truck on Saturday. Admission to the Market is free, but there is a fee to tour the Manor House.

“We are delighted to be able to offer this outdoor market,” said Executive Director Kristen Laise. “It is a great way to support local businesses and artisans, while providing a safe holiday shopping experience for our community.”

In December, Belle Grove Plantation including the Beverley B. Shoemaker Welcome Center (which includes the Museum Shop, exhibits, and restrooms) is open Monday-Thursday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Friday-Saturday 10 a.m.-8 p.m., and Sunday 1-5 p.m. Belle Grove will be closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and will close for the winter on December 31.

Guided house tours are offered Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. with tours beginning at quarter past each hour (first tour at 10:15 a.m. and last tour at 3:15 p.m.) and on Sunday 1-5 p.m. (first tour at 1:15 p.m. and last tour at 4:15 p.m.). On Friday and Saturday evenings 4-8 p.m. visitors are welcome to take self-guided tours, the Manor House will be lit by candlelight, and there will be live music in the Parlor from 6-8 p.m. (schedule at www.bellegrove.org). These hours could be subject to change given the ongoing pandemic.

Guided tours of the Manor House have been modified to accommodate physical distancing. There is a limit of ten guests per tour and admission is sold on-site only and on a first-come, first-served basis. Guests over the age of 5 are required to wear masks over their nose and mouth while on the property and maintain six feet of distance from others in the Museum Shop and when looking at exhibits.

Admission for both guided and self-guided Manor House tours is $12 for adults, $11 for members of the military, AAA, the National Parks, and individuals 60 and older. Students 6-16 and National Trust for Historic Preservation members are $6. Children 5 and younger are free. Belle Grove members are free of charge as benefit of their membership. Visitors may join Belle Grove and immediately use this benefit at Christmas along with 10% off non-consignment purchases in the Museum Shop.

The Shenandoah Valley Tapestry is on display in the Beverley B. Shoemaker Welcome Center until December 30. In its honor, the 2020 Belle Grove holiday decorating theme is a “A Homespun Holiday” and features crafts in addition to natural decorations throughout the Manor House.

Belle Grove volunteers decorated the front porch and carriage on the lawn and the Apple Valley Garden Club decorated the Manor House’s front hall, which welcomes visitors as they arrive. The Glen Burnie Garden Club’s decorations in the Parlor surround the 12-foot Norway Spruce Christmas tree donated by John and Judith Tole of Evergreen Christmas Tree Farm in Woodville, Virginia. Middletown Garden Club decorated the Library and Hawthorne Garden Club decorated the Day Sitting Room. Winchester-Clarke Garden Club decorated the Office, and the Little Garden Club of Winchester decorated the Dining Room. Colonial Garden Club decorated the Nursery and Warren County Garden Club decorated the Gold Bedroom. Shenandoah Garden Club of Woodstock decorated the Winter Kitchen and the Northern Shenandoah Valley Master Gardeners Association provided natural and craft decorations in the other rooms of the lower level of the Manor House.

The Shenandoah Valley Tapestry, a community stitching project which was done between 2015 and 2018, depicts in embroidery the painting Winchester and Frederick County, Virginia by Page Huff Dillon, which was in turn, was inspired by the book Defend the Valley by Margaretta Barton Colt. It meticulously illustrates historic sites in Winchester and Frederick County, including Belle Grove. Eighty-one stitchers of all skill levels and ages, from across five states and from abroad worked on the Tapestry. Through community outreach events, 1,400 community members also made one stitch in this unique artwork. There is no admission to see the tapestry on display at Belle Grove.

“We thank Belle Grove for hosting the Tapestry, especially during holiday touring. It has become a tradition for the project’s stitchers to thank the hosting organization with a special needlework project. Since the Manor House was embroidered for the Tapestry, we decided to choose the image of the Plantation Office and Shop for the new community stitching. All are welcome to come and take a stitch. No embroidery skills are required. Afterwards, the piece will be finished by the Shenandoah Valley artists and donated to Belle Grove,” said Irina Galunina the Shenandoah Valley Project Manager.

Belle Grove Plantation is a non-profit historic house museum that is a National Trust for Historic Preservation site and a partner in Cedar Creek and Belle Grove National Historical Park. It is located off Route 11 at 336 Belle Grove Road south of Middletown, Virginia. Information and updates on holiday tours may be found at www.bellegrove.org or at www.facebook.com/BelleGrove.

Virginia War Memorial to observe Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day with virtual livestream program this year

Published

on

The Virginia War Memorial will observe Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day this year with a virtual livestream program on Monday, December 7, 2020, at 11 a.m.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, there will be no live ceremony to honor the Virginians who died in the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and other Hawaiian bases on December 7, 1941, which propelled the United States into World War II.

Instead, the Virginia War Memorial will livestream a program hosted by Memorial Director and noted historian Dr. Clay Mountcastle. The program will include a special edition of the Memorial’s “From the Archives” with Memorial archivist Heidi Sheldon who will highlight items relating to the Pearl Harbor attack from the Memorial’s extensive artifact collection. Concluding the program will be the showing of the award-winning Virginians at War documentary, “World War II: Pearl Harbor” featuring the personal stories of Virginians who witnessed the attack.

“We regret that because of the COVID-19 restrictions that we cannot join with our partners at the Navy League of the United States, Richmond Chapter to hold a public ceremony this year to honor and remember those brave Virginians who lost their lives on December 7, 1941,” said Dr. Mountcastle. “The names of these heroes are forever inscribed on the walls of the Memorial’s Shrine of Memory-20th Century where they will be remembered and honored for generations to come for their service and sacrifice.”

The public can register to view the Pearl Harbor Day Observance livestream by clicking HERE or watch the livestream on December 7 at www.Facebook.com/VirginiaWarMemorial.

The Virginia War Memorial is located at 621 South Belvidere Street in Richmond.  It is open to the public Monday-Saturday, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Sunday, 12 noon – 4 p.m.  Admission and parking is free.  Due to current COVID-19 guidelines, facemasks and social distancing are required, and the number of visitors permitted inside the Memorial at any one time is limited.  For more information, please visit www.vawarmemorial.org, www.dvs.virginia.gov or call 804-786-2060.

“Wreaths Across America Day” will be celebrated December 19th

Published

on

WHAT MATTERS Warren — For several years, Troop 4 has participated in the national day of remembering the fallen and honoring those who serve, and as an effort to teach children the value of freedom. This year, Troop 4 will again partner with WAA to honor our Veterans.  COVID-19 safety precautions will be in place, and guests are asked to wear masks.  “It may slow us down, but it will not stop us,” said Jim Naccash, Scoutmaster for Troop 4.  “Despite the Pandemic, we continue to operate to serve our community.” Click the video below to see the video about last year’s touching event:

Donations are accepted all year to recognize each military grave in the cemetery, and WHAT MATTERS is making a “Next 10 Wreaths” challenge. Beth will match the next 10 wreaths sponsored in memory of those who have served. Wreaths are only $15 each, so please sponsor 2 or more, if you can. Also, check out the fantastic gift-giving ideas on their website (including ways to donate in memory/ honor of a loved one and to pair a donation with a purchase of a fresh wreath delivered to your door).

To support log onto wreathsacrossamerica.org. If you’d like to participate in the “Next 10 Wreaths” challenge, email hitek007@hotmail.com after placing your order and your donation will be matched as explained above.

Visit WreathsAcrossAmerica.org for more details about this touching event that flocked more than 1,200 cemeteries with wreaths for the holiday season and to sponsor a wreath for Prospect Hill Cemetery.

To purchase: Cash or checks made out to Troop 4 or wreaths may be sponsored via credit card online here.  Or visit the national site, Wreathsacrossamerica.org  click on “search for groups.” Type in Boy Scouts of America Troop 4 (VA0443P)” and select “sponsor.”

From Wreaths Across America: “Wreaths Across America’s mission touches the lives of thousands of school, scout, civic and religious groups across the country through fundraising for wreath sponsorships. These groups help us ensure that we reach our goal to place a wreath on each hero’s grave. We understand we have Veterans Day in the fall and Memorial Day in the spring, but our service members sacrifice their time and safety every single day of the year to preserve our freedoms. In many homes, there is an empty seat for one who is serving or one who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. We hope you will join us at any of our more than 1,600 participating locations to show our veterans and their families that we will not forget. We will never forget.”

Due to recent  COVID-19 regulations, there will be limited capacity at the opening ceremony tent.  Volunteers are welcome to watch the event from the cemetery property in their cars AND we ALL can join the live streaming of the event on Social Media. (details will be posted here before the event.)

Volunteers are still invited to join the group in laying wreaths on the graves of our veterans in small groups after the ceremony. Directions will be provided at the event.  Thanks in advance for joining together to honor the memory of veterans in our community!
