Moran Approves Design For Eisenhower Memorial
03/25/2010

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
