Dwight  D. Eisenhower

1890 – 1969

– 34th President of the United States

– 5 Star General in the United States Army

– Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Forces during World War 2

 

Born in Texas in 1890, brought up in Abilene, Kansas, Eisenhower was the third of seven sons. He excelled in sports in high school, and received an appointment to West Point. Stationed in Texas as a second lieutenant, he met Mamie Geneva Doud, whom he married in 1916.

In his early Army career, he excelled in staff assignments, serving under Generals John J. Pershing, Douglas MacArthur, and Walter Krueger. After Pearl Harbor, General George C. Marshall called him to Washington for a war plans assignment. He commanded the Allied Forces landing in North Africa in November 1942; on D-Day, 1944, he was Supreme Commander of the troops invading France.

Bringing to the Presidency his prestige as commanding general of the victorious forces in Europe during World War II, Dwight D. Eisenhower obtained a truce in Korea and worked incessantly during his two terms (1953-1961) to ease the tensions of the Cold War.

In domestic policy the President pursued a middle course, continuing most of the New Deal and Fair Deal programs, emphasizing a balanced budget. As desegregation of schools began, he sent troops into Little Rock, Arkansas, to assure compliance with the orders of a Federal court; he also ordered the complete desegregation of the Armed Forces. “There must be no second class citizens in this country,” he wrote.

Eisenhower concentrated on maintaining world peace.

Before he left office in January 1961, for his farm in Gettysburg, he urged the necessity of maintaining an adequate military strength, but cautioned that vast, long-continued military expenditures could breed potential dangers to our way of life. He concluded with a prayer for peace “in the goodness of time.” Both themes remained timely and urgent when he died, after a long illness, on March 28, 1969.

    Classic style with modern materials. Tough construction meets timeless design.

    I got one of these for Christmas, and now that I’ve had some time to use it, I’m ready to leave a review. The fit & finish is perfect. It’s a perfect “Goldielocks” size – not to big or too small. I put a HW fire pouch inside of it for easy retrieval of its contents, allowing me to leave the belt pouch on my belt while being able to quickly the fire pouch. A+

    I love the idea of a belt pouch to store some basic kit on my hip at all times. Like other reviews have mentioned I have had some that were to large, others that were too small. This guy is the perfect medium in my option. I have cordage, my SAK, a flashlight, my whole fire kit, a bandanna and room to spare for a deck of cards. It is hardly noticeable on my hip, love it. Buy it and love it like so many others!

    Great pouch with a lot of different possible uses. I use it on the hip of my pack to carry ready items I need like a flashlight, multitool, granola bars and just anything I don’t want to have to dig thru my pack for. Its also the perfect size if I want to walk in the woods and don’t want to load my pockets down as it distributes weight nicely when worn on the belt. Didn’t think I would use it as much as I do. Its a must buy.
