General Eisenhower addresses U.S. Congress.

18 juni 1945

General Eisenhower addresses U.S. Congress. General of the Army Dwight Eisenhower (before the microphones), Supreme Commander of the AEF in Europe, addresses a joint session of the U.S. Congress in Washington, U.S. capital, shortly after his arrival in the United States by plane from Paris. Behind General Eisenhower (on the rostrum) is Senator Kenneth McKellar of the southern U.S. state of Tennessee, President pro tempore of the Senate. General Eisenhower said that the soldier 'knows that in war the threat of separate annihilation tends to hold allies together; he hopes we can find in peace a nobler incentive to produce the same unity'. A rousing welcome hone was given the great U.S. general as he arrived in the U.S. capital for the first time since the armies under his command and the Russian forces won an unconditional surrender from the German enemy.
