The Eisenhower Memorial Commissions has just launched the second of seven Pivotal Moments films honoring U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower, the founding Supreme Allied Commander at NATO. This interactive “e-memorial” was designed to give K-12 students an accessible means to explore his many contributions and his legacy of global peace and security in the 20th and 21st century.
But I think audiences of all ages will find it to be a compelling reminder that security is created by bridges, not by walls.
During my time as SACEUR, I had the pleasure of contributing my reflections on this important world leader in an interview that appears at the end of the video. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed participating in it.
Please click the blue play button under “NATO: A Coalition United for Peace” to watch the video.
