Duty. Honor. Country.
General Douglas MacArthur was the face of America in the Far East during World War II and in the early post-war years. Fifteen years after his death in 1964, Milwaukee honored him by hosting the first MacArthur Memorial Week.
To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of his death and the 35th Anniversary of the dedication of a statue honoring his service in MacArthur Square, Milwaukee once again honored the General with a second MacArthur Memorial Week from June 3 – 7, 2014. In addition to the relocation of the General’s statue to the Milwaukee County War Memorial Center, the event featured five-days of programs highlighting the General’s military career.
