An Eisenhower Memorial?

Washington D.C. (AP) - A memorial plaza to honor former President Dwight Eisenhower is being planned for a spot near the National Mall.

The plan has won approval from the National Capital Memorial Advisory Commission but must still gain the approval of two other bodies, Congress and the White House - a process that could take years...

The Washington Post reports the memorial site is slated for a lot at Independence and Maryland avenues, Southwest, near the National Air and Space Museum.

Eisenhower created the related National Aeronautics and Space Administration as well as the nearby Federal Aviation Administration during his time in office.

It sounds like a good idea, although I would like to see a design.
