1968年10月14日,德怀特·D·艾森豪威尔(Dwight D.Eisenhower)在华盛顿沃尔特里德陆军医院(Walter Reed Army Hospital)的窗户上挥舞着五星旗dNL世界播


It’s an October afternoon on the grounds of the nation’s most renowned military hospital. A bitter presidential campaign is in its stretch run. In his room at Walter Reed, a grievously ill man much more accustomed to life in the Oval Office looks out the window, to be greeted by a surprise. dNL世界播

这是一个十月的下午,在国家最著名的军事医院的院子里。一场激烈的总统竞选正在进行中。在沃尔特·里德(Walter Reed)的房间里,一个更习惯于椭圆形办公室生活的重病患者向窗外望去,迎接他的是一个惊喜。dNL世界播


Dwight D. Eisenhower glances at the lawn and is startled by the sight of hundreds of people looking up toward him. Today—Oct. 14, 1968—is his 78th birthday. His wife, Mamie, stands behind his wheelchair; she, his doctors and nurses have carefully planned this. dNL世界播

德怀特·D·艾森豪威尔(Dwight D.Eisenhower)看了一眼草坪,看到成百上千的人抬头看着他,吓了一跳。今天--1968年10月14日--是他的78岁生日。他的妻子梅米(Mamie)站在他的轮椅后面;她和他的医生和护士都精心策划了这件事。dNL世界播


The conductor of the U.S. Army Band and Chorus raises his baton. The crisply uniformed musicians and vocalists, on signal, commence with a program of Eisenhower’s favorite songs. He has been a patient here for months, having suffered his seventh heart attack. He is more than 24 years removed from the D-Day invasion, seven years from his last day of work in the White House. He brings a handkerchief to his face and dabs his eyes. dNL世界播

美国陆军乐队和合唱团的指挥举起指挥棒。身着整齐制服的音乐家和歌唱家按照信号,以艾森豪威尔最喜欢的歌曲节目开始。他已经在这里当了几个月的病人,这是他第七次心脏病发作。他距离诺曼底登陆日入侵已经24年多了,距离他在白宫的最后一天工作已经7年了。他拿着手帕在脸上轻拍眼睛。dNL世界播


Somewhere else in America, two men—Richard Nixon and Hubert Humphrey—are courting voters. Here on the grounds of Walter Reed Army Hospital people hear the music, and word passes among them about why it is being performed. Soldiers home from Vietnam for treatment, their family members, medical personnel, hospital support staff, all hurry to where the band is playing and look up toward the side of the brick building. dNL世界播

在美国的其他地方,理查德·尼克松(Richard Nixon)和休伯特·汉弗莱(Hubert Humphrey)这两个人正在拉拢选民。在沃尔特里德陆军医院的院子里,人们听到了音乐,他们之间传出了为什么要演出的消息。从越南回国接受治疗的士兵,他们的家人,医务人员,医院支持人员,都匆忙赶到乐队演奏的地方,抬头看着砖瓦建筑的一侧。dNL世界播


Here is what they see in that window, pulled to the up-and-open position in its wooden frame: the 34th president of the United States, with eyeglasses he will sometimes remove, wearing a robe over a pair of pajamas. They sing a greeting to him, using the honorific he prefers postpresidency: “Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday, General Eisenhower...” With the first two fingers of his right hand he flashes them the V-for-victory sign. dNL世界播

这就是他们在那扇窗户上看到的,在木质框架里拉到了打开的位置:美国第34任总统,他有时会摘下眼镜,穿着睡衣外面穿着长袍。他们用他在担任总统后更喜欢的敬语向他致以问候:“祝你生日快乐,祝你生日快乐,生日快乐,艾森豪威尔将军…”他用右手的前两个手指向他们示意V-代表胜利的手势。dNL世界播


The selection of music has been made with care; his wife knows each song will please him. There is “The Yellow Rose of Texas,” commemorating the state where, in small-town Denison, he was born. There is “Army Blue,” traditionally played and sung at West Point graduation ceremonies. There is “The Army Goes Rolling Along.” At the sound of that one, he salutes. dNL世界播

音乐的选择是精心挑选的,他的妻子知道每首歌都会让他高兴。还有“德克萨斯州的黄玫瑰”,纪念他在小镇丹尼森出生的那个州。还有“军蓝”,传统上在西点军校的毕业典礼上演奏和演唱。有一首是“军队滚滚向前”。听到那一声,他敬礼了。dNL世界播


Someone hands him a miniature flag, bearing five stars to signify his rank. He briefly waves it in time with a tune. The crowd beneath the window grows. A song he loves from “The Sound of Music” is played: “Climb every mountain, ford every stream...” dNL世界播

有人递给他一面微型旗帜,上面有五星标志着他的军衔。他用一支曲子在时间上短暂地挥动着它。窗户下面的人群越来越多。播放着他从《音乐之声》中喜欢的一首歌:“逢山必登,逢溪必涉……”dNL世界播


What a life he has led. Within six months, it will have ended. For now, in what will turn out to be his last appearance in public and the final birthday he will ever celebrate, the crowd on the lawn continues to gather, wanting to show their love, respect and gratitude. They look at the man in the window, and he looks back, and the band plays on. dNL世界播

他过着怎样的生活。在六个月内,它就会结束。目前,这将是他最后一次公开露面,也是他将庆祝的最后一次生日,草坪上的人群继续聚集,想要表达他们的爱、尊重和感激。他们看着橱窗里的那个人,他回头看,乐队继续演奏。dNL世界播
