MacArthur's Park at Palo, Leyte

He did return, didn't he?

On this spot, Palo, Leyte, General Douglas MacArthur returned to the Philippines on October 20, 1944. Personally led the swift drive against the Japanese forces in the Philippines. President Sergio Osmeña and some members of the government-in-exile arrived with General Douglas MacArthur and proceeded to reorganize, restore and administer the government of the commonwealth of the Philippines. Declared a National Historical Landmark on 2004.
