Transcript of CALE BOHOLST
Douglas MacArthur Promised the people of the Philippines that he will return after the war and returned to the Philippines in Palo. He returned and everyone was grateful and decided to make a memorial in his honor.
Sacrifices he made during the war
The United States army said Douglas MacArthur showed extraordinary heroism in action while serving as Chief of Staff in world war II against japan for many reasons including that he remained in Japan to command the occupation forces there and to oversee the rebuilding of the country.
General MacArthur trained, mobilized, and led an army which has received world acclaim for its gallant defense against a tremendous superiority of enemy forces in men and arms. His utter disregard of personal danger under heavy fire and aerial bombardment, his calm judgment in each crisis, inspired his troops, galvanized the spirit of resistance of the Filipino people, and confirmed the faith of the American people in their Armed Forces. This shows that he doesnt just care about himself but for his country too.
Courage and Strategy
In July 1941, MacArthur was recalled to active duty and became commander of U.S. forces in the Pacific. A Japanese invasion of the Philippines that same year drove MacArthur’s forces from the country, but in the years that followed, MacArthur launched a number of successful offensive operations against the Japanese military in the region. During this time, he was frequently and openly critical of his superiors’ decision to focus military resources on the war in Europe rather than in the Pacific.
