Hell, didn’t Eisenhower desegregate the military?

No. He did order that troops be used to reinforce units during the Bulge with no regard to race. The troops experience fighting alongside one another was used by Truman as his official excuse when he desegregated the Army because Southerners were being shitheads to returning soldiers. Combat in Korea would then validate the decision.
