The Eisenhower Memorial
In this E-Memorial to former President and Supreme Allied Commander Dwight D. Eisenhower -- part of the official Presidential memorial project under construction -- Admiral James G. Stavridis reflects on Eisenhower's leadership as the first Supreme Allied Commander at NATO and the great "diplomat-warrior’s” legacy for future generations. "General Eisenhower knew that for security to exist in the 20th century, it had to come from building alliances, partnerships and coalitions. I think Dwight Eisenhower understood better than any other that security is created not by walls but by bridges," says Stavridis, the 16th Supreme Allied Commander at NATO and current dean of The Fletcher School.
