On the air this morning, Tim Rives from the Eisenhower Museum, Library and Boyhood Home gave us some information I did not know about Ike. Ike was the only one of the 7 Eisenhower brothers born in Kansas. I did know Ike had been born in Dension, Texas and that the family had moved from Abilene and returned to abilene from Denison shortly after he was born. No wonder he always felt Kansas was his real home! Did you know President Eisenhower was the first US president with a Pilot's License? Did you know he coined the term "Airforce One"? So many ties to aviation...one of the MANY reasons the airport in Wichita should be named for him. Please sign the petition and tell your friends...a World Class Name for a World Class airport is coming!
