TOPEKA _ Gov. Sam Brownback on Tuesday issued the following statement marking the 125th anniversary of the birth of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who was born Oct. 14, 1890.

“Men like Dwight D. Eisenhower are rare among us. They embody the qualities to which we all aspire – honor, integrity, courage and steadfast commitment to family, faith and country. On this anniversary of his birth, we rightly feel pride that he called Kansas home.

“Eisenhower’s legacy is of a man who understood the need for military force to defeat the world’s enemies and the importance of building a lasting peace and a prosperous America. Despite his many accomplishments, he remained simply ‘Ike,’ a boy from Abilene Kansas, a devoted husband and father. A great American.

“As Governor, I support efforts to memorialize the accomplishments and values that Eisenhower embodied by building a national monument which represents those values for which Eisenhower so valiantly fought.  

“On this 125
th anniversary of his birth, let us pause to remember his many accomplishments and take pride in the fact that he, like us, called Kansas home.”
