When did General Douglas MacArthur lead the invasion of the Admiralty Islands?
General of the Army Douglas MacArthur received the US Medal of Honor during WWII - TWICE! One from the Army and one from the Navy. FYI- there are two Father and Sons who were recipients of the MOH: General Arthur MacArthur and General of the Army Douglas MacArthur; the other Theodore Roosevelt and Theodore Roosevelt, Jr.
The fight for the freedom of the Philippines from Japanese invasion. The American evacuation of the Philippines was the result of Japan's aggression in East Asia. General MacArthur would keep his promise and did return. Before this happened there was a top secret meeting between President Roosevelt, MacArthur, and Admiral Nimitz. MacArthur talked the president to retake the Philippines instead of attacking Formosa.
