cold war memorial

One month from today will be the 50th anniversary of a top secret plane crash that killed my uncle Terry O'Donnell. I never knew him but I do know that he was loved by his family. Everything I have ever heard about him identifies him as a true hero and role model. My cousin Terry Hatton (another hero) was named after our late uncle. A group in Las Vegas is trying to establish a permanent memorial to the crash that killed 14 men. The Silent Heroes of the Cold War committee hopes to unveil the architectural plans for the memorial on November 17 during an event at the Mount Charleston Hotel in Nevada. An architect named George Tate is working on several designs for the family members to review. Once a design is selected, it must be approved by the U.S. Forest Service.
