The Official 2019 White House Christmas Ornament by the White House Historical Association pays homage to the thirty-fourth U.S. president, Dwight D. Eisenhower, highlighting his commitment to innovation. The ornament symbolizes Eisenhower’s role as the first president to utilize a helicopter for office commute in July 1957, effectively normalizing its use in the White House. To demonstrate impartiality, he alternated between helicopters provided by the U.S. Army and Marine Corps flight crews. The ornament doesn’t depict a single helicopter; instead, one side features the Presidential Seal, representing his two-term presidency, while the other showcases his five-star rank, honoring his service as a U.S. Army general. The tradition of presidential helicopter rides, pioneered by Eisenhower and carried on by Lockheed Martin’s Sikorsky since 1957, is proudly celebrated with this ornament.
