Dear Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum,
My name is Matthew Winick and I recently graduated from Washtenaw Community College in Ann Arbor Michigan. My main focus was studying history, political science, criminal justice, world cultures, and some business. My favorite of all of these subjects is history. The reason I love studying history is to recognize famous people along with minorities, gender, people with disabilities, and people with different orientation who work hard to make a difference in the world, how they overcome their struggle, and how they work to advocate for equal rights with Civil Rights to end discrimination. As a history student most of my school year I enjoy learning about Dwight D. Eisenhower’s life. He is one of my favorite famous Americans because he made a difference in American history as a General for WWII and as U.S. President. In College I had a pleasure to work on an essay about Dwight D. Eisenhower. I really enjoy learning about him on how he really made a great difference in America along with around the world. When working on my essay about him I was moved by how he was a moderate Republican as President who gave award to Asian Americans along with minorities who served in the military, supported Civil Rights to help minorities from being discriminated, assisted nine African American students at Little Rock Nine by sending the military to guard them from being attacked, and how he was able to fund money to improve roads with transportation and create jobs under The Federal Aid Highway Act. Also I was amazed by his work on foreign policy like ending then Korean War by diving the 38th parallel. Dwight Eisenhower was a great Allied Supreme Commander who gave confidence to Allied troops and created D-Day to help Allies troops pass the Normandy Beach with Operation torch where the allies pushed Nazis out of Africa.
As a history student and an Asian American I am moved and inspired by President Eisenhower’s achievements to help minorities. Also what I like about Eisenhower was he warned about the military complex industries because he wanted to protect people’s civil liberties from being violated and end the corruption from special interest groups. I am sending you a copy of my essay about Dwight Eisenhower, my endorsement letter to Eisenhower Memorial for D.C., and my bio praising Eisenhower’s work to help minorities, and also I was wondering if you can send my letter with sharing her my essay, endorsement, and my bio to Susan Eisenhower, Granddaughter of Dwight Eisenhower. Thanks for reading my letter and I hope someday I can visit The Eisenhower Presidential museum and the memorial in DC.

Dear Mrs. Eisenhower,
My name is Matthew Winick with a strong interest in studying history and government. Mrs. Eisenhower, I am truly inspired by your grandfather President Dwight D. Eisenhower work and his achievements to make a world a better place. As a history student I had a pleasure to study about your grandfather and write an essay about his life and his achievements. When studying about him I was touched and moved because President Dwight Eisenhower had a heart who cared for the people including minorities. Your grandfather really inspired me because he was a moderate Republican who supported extending social security to help minorities with health insurance, strongly supported Civil Rights, and have federal spending to help create jobs and improve transportation under the Federal Highway bill. As an Asian American I am proud to call to President Dwight Eisenhower my hero for working hard to help minorities get the help they need from discrimination along with him awarding minorities including Asian Americans. Your grandfather also inspired me from his speech about warning about the military complex industry because he cared about safeguard of people’s civil liberties and wants America to be a better place from corruption of special interest groups with military complex industries making Congress corrupt with lobbying money. Mrs. Eisenhower I am also inspired by how you work hard to keep Eisenhower’s legacy alive by advocating to help countries build better relations with other countries, help advocate people who are different from discrimination, and help support job creation from government by testifying in Congress. I am also proud to support The Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial in D.C. and I have my endorsement letter that I had written to the commission last year. I understand that you disagree with the design, but the main reason I really support moving this memorial project forward is because your grandfather really made great achievements to help people, I believe that it is time to honor your grandfather for his work to make a world a better place, and also I believe that having a memorial for Dwight will help Americans along with troops/ veterans feel confident and learn more about his work. I’m willing to share with you my endorsement letter to the commission to show the reason why I support the memorial with how I appreciate your grandfather’s work as an Allied Commander and U.S. President. Also I have a bio of my life where I included how Dwight Eisenhower made a difference in my life to support minorities. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter. From a history student perspective I believe that you are making a great difference in the world by advocating to make a future better place along with keeping your grandfather’s legacy alive with his moderate views.
