I Still Like Ike

Exonumia | DrDarryl

Most of you know that I have a keen interest in the medals awarded/issued by President Dwight D. Eisenhower based on my blog entries.

Well, I  kicked it up a notch by making a donation to the Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial that is to be built in Washington DC (see image of letter and "I Still Like Ike" buttons).

The official Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial website is :

The Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial also has a youtube.com page. In one of their videos, if you look hard enough (starting at time  01:48) you will see a plaque that resembles Eisenhower's inaugural medal.

A great video ...

Have you visited the Eisenhower Presidential Library in Abilene, KS? I have been there a number of times. It is worth the trip.

Thanks for sharing your interests. When I was a youngster, I wrote the White House for a photo of President Eisenhower. I received a 5x7 black and white photo of the President and First Lady. I still have the photo 60 years later.

I like I've. That was a great saying. It's a great set. And I like anything associated with a real hero. Mike
