Pat Roberts, Kansas Repub­li­can and chair­man of the Eisen­hower Me­mo­rial Com­mis­sion, re­veals that the con­struc­tion of the Na­tional Eisen­hower Me­mo­rial is now un­der­way on a rare four-acre site di­rectly across from the Na­tional Air and Space Mu­seum on the Na­tional Mall. The over­all mon­u­ment is de­signed by ar­chi­tect Frank Gehry.
