Douglas MacArthur (1880-1964)
General of the Armies
Born in Little Rock, Arkansas, MacArthur graduated first in his class at West Point, New York, in 1903. He rose through the ranks quickly, and by 1918 was a brigadier general. He retired in 1937, but was recalled to active duty by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1941. MacArthur was named Commander of the Far East forces during World War II, and by 1944, achieved the rank of five-star general of the Army. MacArthur was appointed allied supreme commander in August of 1945, following Japan’s surrender.
 
MacArthur served as the Military Governor of Japan during that nation’s occupation after WW II. He became commander of the United Nations forces, facing the Communists in the Korean War. President Harry Truman relieved him of this position in 1951, after MacArthur openly disagreed with the president’s war policy. MacArthur returned to a hero’s welcome in America.
