My page for Gen. Eisenhower
He certainly and more deserves a page. He also had a close relationship with the Philippines. On one of his duty tours he helped Gen. MacArthur establish the Philippine Army.
Gen. MacArthur and Gen. Eisenhower
Many times I have heard this when their relationship was discussed, that Gen. Eisenhower had said: “I studied dramatics under him”. Or that Gen Mac Arthur had said this about Gen. Eisenhower: “The best Clerk I ever had”.
A lot of people don’t know that Gen. Eisenhower worked seven (7) years for Gen MacArthur in their past.
