    Eisenhower: I could look it up, but it's late, so I'll just throw it out. Didn't he miss combat altogether? He was in The U.S. for WWI, right? It would be a bit ridiculous to say he never led anyone in combat, but strictly speaking he did not, am I right? He directed European operations, of course, but never actually charged the enemy himself. Right? Or did he participate in Africa someway? Can't remember.........I'll think about it tomorrow...........ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    I would think it would be befitting, given the President is the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces. Personally, as dangerous as it might be, I think a President should have the option of taking a very direct role in warfare--beyond just giving orders. Perhaps acting as a field General of sorts if there was ever another major, large scale war.

    I've read Lincoln was VERY hands on with regard to the Civil War, even going so far as to help plan out the day to day strategies and troop movements.

    Marine I belongs to the Navy. That's sufficient, no presidential yacht is needed.

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    I don't think Ike had too active a role in WWI.
    Truman, however, did see action and lead troops into battle during his WWI service.

    Getting rid of the Presidential yacht was just another thing Carter did to make the US look like a lesser nation.
