Hawkeye says that when he was a boy, "Franklin Roosevelt was always the President." Franklin Delano Roosevelt served in the White House from 1933-1945. He was the only US President to be elected to four terms. The Twenty-Second Amendment to the Constitution which limits the President of the United States to two terms was not yet in effect during FDR's administration. It would be passed in 1951. FDR died in office during his fourth term.
