Dwight Eisenhower: There are No Atheists in Foxholes

American Minute with Bill Federer

World War II ended in Europe on MAY 7, 1945, when German emissaries met at General Dwight Eisenhower’s Headquarters, a schoolhouse in Reims, France, and signed an unconditional surrender. The War in Europe lasted five and half years, costing millions of lives. After the war, Eisenhower was elected the 34th President by the largest number of votes in history.

In remarks broadcast from the White House as part of the American Legion “Back-to-God” Program, February 7, 1954, President Eisenhower stated:

As a former soldier, I am delighted that our veterans are sponsoring a movement to increase our awareness of God in our daily lives. In battle, they learned a great truth-that there are no atheists in the foxholes. They know that in time of test and trial, we instinctively turn to God for new courage…Whatever our individual church, whatever our personal creed, our common faith in God is a common bond among us.

At the next year’s “Back-to-God” Program, February 20, 1955, Eisenhower stated:

Without God, there could be no American form of Government, nor an American way of life. Recognition of the Supreme Being is the first – the most basic – expression of Americanism.
