LEADER OF AMERICAN FORCES IN THE PACIFIC DURING WWII.  ACCEPTED THE JAPANESE SURRENDER ABOARD THE BATTLESHIP MISSOURI IN TOKYO BAY 1945.  BEST KNOW QUOTES, "I SHALL RETURN"  SPEAKING OF HIS RETURN TO THE PHILIPPINES  FOLLOWING THE JAPANESE CONQUEST OF THOSE ISLANDS IN 1942.  AND OF COURSE HIS "OLD SOLDIERS NEVER DIE, THEY JUST FADE AWAY" LINE IN HIS RETIREMENT SPEECH AT WEST POINT!  THANK YOU GENERAL  FOR YOUR SERVICE.

I've been on the battleship Missouri. I thanked him for his service then too.

Have a fabulous day. ☺
