A Family of Service

Eisenhower National Historic Site


What does it mean to serve a cause greater than yourself? Robert and Dorothy McCormick were part of a family of service. Both were veterans of the U.S. Navy during WWII. Dorothy’s father was John Stewart Bragdon, a graduate of the West Point Class of 1915—the same class as Dwight D. Eisenhower—and had a decorated military career of his own.

Join Park Ranger Dan Vermilya for the fascinating story of one family’s service during WWII, and their continuing service afterwards.
