RADM P.D. Smith Visits Cold War Gallery

On 8 January 2013, RADM P.D. Smith, USN (Ret) visited the Cold War Gallery at the Washington Navy Yard. The purpose of the visit was to discuss the layout of a future Maritime Patrol Aircraft exhibit for the Gallery. RADM Smith generously donated money for the construction of a Lockheed P2V-5 Neptune model, on display in the Gallery. The model was built by Michael “Pyscho” McLeod, whose meticulous model construction techniques were detailed in this earlier blog story.
