The Tale of Arthur MacArthur: A Bold Legacy

Recommended Posts

In this article, at the end, the author states: "Douglas would earn the Medal of Honor during the First World War, and would thus make history with his father."   No, actually Douglas would earn the Medal of Honor for his leadership in the Philippines in the Second World War.   

But this is not to say that Douglas was not brave in the First World War.  He won seven Silver Star medals for combat valor, a feat not surpassed until an NCO in the Korean War earned eight Silver Stars.  He actually had General of the Army MacArthur pin on his eighth one.
