WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman Jerry Moran voted to approve the
design for the National Eisenhower Memorial, created by world-renowned
architect Frank O. Gehry. Congressman Moran serves as a member of the
Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial Commission.
"President Eisenhower represents the best of America, and the design we
approved today will be a fitting tribute to one of America's greatest
leaders. I commend Frank Gehry and his team for creating a design that
will honor Ike's legacy and remind future generations of his deep
commitment to freedom for all people," said Moran.
"Kansans are proud to call President Eisenhower one of our 'sons,' and
proud to join all Americans in honoring his lifetime of service to our
nation, during some of our most challenging days. It is my hope that the
National Eisenhower Memorial will inspire all Americans to recall its
proud history and bright future."
Upon completion, the Eisenhower Memorial will be the first presidential
memorial of the 21st century, and only the seventh in U.S. history. It
will be built on a four-acre site in Washington, D.C., between 4th and
6th streets SW, just off of The National Mall
