I went to admire the bust and revisit the bricks we bought for our military family members. The bust welcomes all who drive north on Hwy 75. It is a great entrance to a forward moving community.

Can been seen from the highway but worth taking the access road & drive up to it. There are 5 flags flying representing each branch of the military. Also behind the monument is a Pioneer Village you can tour.

It took a few different tries using GPS to get to it, my car and phone, but eventually I found it using Loy Lake Park's address as it's right there at the entrance. Directly behind it is Frontier Village, which I found out too late doesn't take cards for payment. Anyway, the monument itself is impressive and specific with detail.... More

Good location, clearly visible to anyone traveling on US 75. The reason I only gave it a 4-star rating is that it looks puny after seeing the statue monument of Sam Houston in Huntsville, Texas on I-45 between Dallas and Houston. I just think that a much larger tribute could have been made to a man that did so much... More

Didn't know this was here, saw it because we noticed it on a trip. Having just finished listening to "Killing Patton", we did appreciate this tribute to not only Eisenhower, but to all of our veterans

Not many people know that Denison is the birth place of this great general and president. This monument memorializes all members of the armed forces and is a beautiful and reverent place.

I had this as one of my stops on a road trip from Plano to Hugo and was worried about how hard it would be to find. It was easy - right on the hwy! Neat to see, and a lot larger than I was expecting!

The big bust of Eisenhower on 75 was a surprise, but as my husband is a big military buff we had to stop... Glad we did... We spend the weekend in this area and went on the birthplace of Eisenhower..Great history!!

The statute of Eisenhower it's really detailed with him wearing his military suit. It is just a "bust" of the President but too me you see more. The setting is nice and it is right off the highway. You don't have to worry about getting lost, you exit and pull into the monument and then get right back on hwy.... More
