In the next Proceedings

In the June issue, the Proceedings is pleased to be able to offer a special documentary footnote to current history. What might be termed "A Visit With Ike"—one warmly remembered by those who heard the General speak at the Naval War College in 1961—is re-presented for our readers in a transcript of candid commentary by the late President.

General Eisenhower's views on such diverse subjects as the significance of the race to the moon, command decision-making in joint and unified military operations, and his remarks in an extension of his oft-cited reference to the "military-industrial complex" arc as pertinent and vital today as when they were first expressed in the privileged environment of the Naval War College nearly a decade past.
