(FOX NEWS) The family members of Dwight D. Eisenhower are upset over a memorial for the late president that prominently features a small monument showing “Ike” as a child and barefoot rather than giving greater attention to the war hero and world leader he became.

“President Eisenhower’s contribution to this nation is not the central theme to this design,” Susan Eisenhower, the president’s granddaughter, testified Tuesday to the House Natural Resources Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests and Public Lands.
