When America and the World Needed Leadership
In World War II, as humanity tore itself to pieces and the true evil of the Axis Powers threatened liberty around the globe, the world looked for leadership. It found it in a man named Dwight David Eisenhower. Supreme Commander of Allied Forces, General Eisenhower was the final decision maker for the Allied Powers in World War II. It was Eisenhower who decided whether to launch D-Day as the weather worsened and chances for success waned. It was Eisenhower to whom even Sir Winston Churchill turned for counsel and aid in Britain’s darkest hours as they faced the onslaught of Nazi air power. Dwight Eisenhower was born in Denison, Texas and was raised in Abilene, Kansas, in a tiny, humble home in the small cattle town. He went on to become not just a four-star General, but the President of the United States. As an aside, he was also the Supreme Commander of NATO, and president of Columbia University. When the world needed leadership during its darkest hour, it turned to the FOS. We are FOS.
