the Eisenhower Memorial

Post by koimaster » September 15th 2020, 11:33am

Dwight David Eisenhower was one of the towering figures of the 20th century: A five-star general, he led the D-Day invasion and helped defeat the Nazis. A two-term president, he brought stability to postwar America.

Since his death in 1969, memories of the man called Ike have faded. But this week, the dedication of an Eisenhower Memorial in Washington, D.C., will bring him vividly back to mind.

This memorial is not like any other presidential monument in Washington. No sky-piercing white obelisk (George Washington), no massive, looming bronze statue (Abraham Lincoln.)

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

Some of my earliest memories of anything presidential were the many newscasts that began "President Eisenhower played golf today." Of course those were after he had his heart attack and were designed to show that he had recovered and was in good health. As a little kid, it was very comforting to know that things were normal.
