After years of dedicated service, on Apr. 28, 1952, Dwight D. Eisenhower resigned his commission as commander of NATO forces. The decision was made as Eisenhower was elected President of the United States, where he would serve for two terms. His responsibilities with NATO would have been impugned had he remained in his influential post as leader of the military for that organization.
