Discover the Life and Legacy
of Richard Nixon

President Nixon was one of the most experienced and well-prepared occupants of our nation’s highest office.The strategic thinking that he brought to the presidency was unprecedented. He was relentless in a lifelong quest to achieve a more peaceful world, and he fashioned a comprehensive strategy for world peace that was methodically implemented over five and a half years as commander in chief.

Elements of his plan included a restoration of decades-long important alliances in Europe, the signing of the Paris Peace Accords and ending of American involvement in the Vietnam War, opening China to the world, to force the Soviet Union to negotiate, resulting in a substantial decrease in tensions around the world and the first nuclear arms limitation agreements with the Soviet Union. His decisive action on Israel’s behalf in the Yom Kippur War when he declared, “send everything that can fly,” saved Israel and expelled the Soviet Union from the region. He went to the Middle East shortly thereafter to form new strategic partnerships that benefit America today.
