We totally enjoyed learning more about General MacArthur. Great that it is free. Downtown mall is across the street so use the free parking garage.

It is here and I saw it and didn't draw much from it. Understand who the man was and what he did but memorial is not memorial.

We have been meaning to visit this military history spot for some time, and finally had a chance today. This is also where Macarthur and his second wife are buried. Well curated military artifacts of both General Macarthur and his father.
