MAACA Advisor News
Irving High JROTC students receive visit by Mary Eisenhower and three veterans
  President Dwight Eisenhower¡¯s granddaughter Mary Eisenhower (far right in the picture) and three veterans recently visited Irving High School Marine Corps JROTC students.


MAACA Advisor Mary Jean Eisenhower was Invited to 70th Anniversary of Normandy, France
  For young people, there was no way to know if they would live to see another dawn, let alone the end of the Second World War, but for those who did survive, today marks another milestone in their tale, as the world commemorates the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings.

When tens of thousands of soldiers, sailors and airmen from across the free world descended on the coastline of Normandy in one of the greatest invasion forces the world had ever seen, a great victory the Allies had 70 years ago under the direction of Dwight Eisenhower, grandfather of our advisor, Mary Eisenhower.

Thank you, Mary Eisenhower, this day is a somber and bittersweet occasion for you and your family!
