How long were US troops in the Philippines in World War 2?

Accepted figures describe 46,000 casualties: 10,000 killed and 36,000 American military wounded, and 90,000 Filipino civilians in the Re-Conquest of the Phillipines. Since the Mariana Islands had already been captured, isolating the Japanese in the Philippines, Vietnam, etc, it is accepted that the Re-Conquest tactically and strategically was unnecessary. The Mariana Islands (particularly Saipan) served as a forward air-field for attacking the Japanese home islands and supporting attacks on Iwo Jima and Okinawa. Due to the island hopping strategy, the Japanese troops on the Philippine Islands , like many other Japanese-held Asian territories, were militarily isolated and played no role and no threat to the US efforts to defeat the Japanese on the mainland. Nimitz and other US military leaders believed the Re-Conquest of the Japanese islands were a major distraction from the main goal of defeating the Japanese. The Re-Conquest of the Philippines required 1½ years, and has been generally characterized as a face-saving effort to rebuild MacArthur's shattered reputation. There would have been far fewer US and Filipino casualties if we had left the Japanese garrisons to surrender like other stranded Japanese armies across Asia.
