General Douglas MacArthur

If you don't know about General Douglas MacArthur, you should read about him. "I shall return", a phrase he uttered after the U.S. Army was driven out Baatan, Superindent of West Point, Commander of U.S. Army Forces of the Far East during WW2, fired by Truman for insubordination - a long, decorated, and colorful career. He was an American legend when I was growing up.

The caption says that the photo was taken between 1905 and 1945, I'm estimating around 1920 because of how old he looks. Someone with knowledge of medals (look at his chest!) could probably narrow it down.

Kathy Pinna He WAS all about the look - in the military but if you look at his biography, he was really a politician . . . with the ego of a politician! ;)

Anthony Morano The negative is printed in reverse. The ribbons are on the wrong side.
