My generation remembers that President Ford took over for President Nixon that historic day of 1974. Nixon resigned and VP Ford moved to the presidency.
Who can ever forget President Nixon's farewell statement at The White House? or President Ford's brief inauguration speech.
The President served for a short time because he lost the 1976 election to Governor Carter.
Nevertheless, he is remembered as a man of integrity and exactly the right man that the country needed at the time.
