Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library

Grand Rapids, Michigan USA

On  9 August 1974 became President of the United States under the most difficult of circumstance.  He conducted his Presidency with the same honor and dedication with which he had served his country for many years as a United States Congressman and before that in the U.S. Navy during WWII.  

President Ford is, and will always be, one of my personal heroes.
