Dwight "Ike" David Eisenhower
Transcript of Dwight "Ike" David Eisenhower
By Joe Merlino
Hello, my name is Dwight D. Eisenhower, but you can just call me Ike. I was Born in Abilene, Texas in 1890. I am the third of seven sons. My father, David Jacob Eisenhower, taught me the things I needed to know to become a 5 star general and a president of the United States. Ida Stover Eisenhower, my mother, taught me the importance of life and politics. My brother, Milton S. Eisenhower, bullied me as a kid, but the thing that he taught me is how to be tough and stand up to others.
How it all started...
Before I changed the world with my famous slogan, " I Like Ike," I was drafted to West point and became a second lieutenant in Texas. While a lieutenant I served for very famous generals. I was drafted to the Philippines and battled against the feared Japanese army. I built my reputation by being a good manager. After Pearl Harbor, a supreme general summoned me to Washington, D.C. and put me in charge of forces in North Africa on November 1942. We were victorious. I was again called to D.C. and the supreme general put me in charge of the Europe attacks on D-Day. I then retired and became president of Columbia University. As I said before, I took a sweeping victory in the presidential election with my empowering slogan " I like Ike.".
My life before Presidency
While I was president I eased tensions in the Cold War. I defeated the Soviet Union in the Cold War and brought an armed peace treaty with South Korea. I discussed with Russian, Britain, and French governments about the safety of hydrogen bombs. I started the space race to the moon and developed the federal international highway. I suffered a heart attack in Denver, Colorado. My body could not take how much I was moving around and I had to spend 7 weeks in the hospital. After this tragic event, I started the " Atoms for Peace " program.
My Time as a President
I retired in January 1961. I died on March 18, 1969. That was the end of a heroes, presidents, and gentlemen's life.
