Ike is “a man of the troops.” The famous picture of Ike with a group of paratroopers just prior to the Normandy invasion is reflective of Eisenhower. A statue of Ike should stand tall in a prominent place on the Mall in Washington, preferably near the World War II Memorial. It would be appropriate for a memorial of Ike to be surrounded by the men and women who so greatly admired his leadership.
