Posted by RALEIGH DEGEER AMYX on Sat, Jun 18, 2011 @ 09:29 AM

Featured is the World War 11 Leather Jacket of Dwight D. Eisenhower. This Class-One War Relic was, following the Death of Ike, in 1969, in the possession of his Valet and Friend, Sgt. John Moaney. Sgt. Moaney and the General first met in 1942 at Telegraph Cottage, 15 miles South of London - The Headquarters of The Allied effort in The European Theater. It was there that the General met with Moaney for the purpose of interviewing him for the position of Valet and Assistant to the Commanding General. At that time Sgt. Moaney had never even seen a General. But then and there Ike had Moaney reassigned to him at Headquarters. And from 1942 until the President's Death in 1969 (27 years) they were together each and every day. After the President retired, as President in 1961, Ike moved, with Mamie, to their new home in Pennsylvania - Gettysburg Farm. And Sgt. John Moaney and his wife, Delores also moved into the beautiful home with the Eisenhower's.
