He was famous for the words, "I shall return." and indeed, Filipinos held on to that promise during World War II. To commemorate his return to the Philippines, a memorial of General MacArthur's landing along with his fleet in Leyte was erected.

Facts about the memorial (source:www.thetravelmart.net)
Situated in Red Beach, Palo, Leyte, the monument marks the spot where General Douglas MacArthur landed with the American Liberation Forces in 1944. The statues of the liberators stand in a lagoon, 1.5 times bigger than lifesize. It is also the site of the 50th Leyte Landing Anniversary Commemorative Rock Garden of Peace. A beautiful beach can be found in the area.

Pilipino:
Kilala siya sa mga katagang "Ako'y magbabalik." at pinaniwalaan ito ng nakakaraming Pilipino noong Ikalawang Pandaigdigang Digmaan. Sa pag-alala ng kanyang pagdating kasama ang kanyang mga sundalo, isang memoryal ang itinayo sa Leyte.


Ang monumento na nagtatanda sa lugar ng pagdating ni Heneral Douglas MacArthur kasama ang puwersa ng mga Amerikanong sundalo noong 1944 ay nasa Red Beach, Palo, Leyte. Ang mga istatuwa ng mga nagpalaya na tumatayong 1.5 pang mas malaki sa tunay na taas na tao ay nakatayo sa isang maliit na look. Dito rin makikita ang mabatong hardin na nagpapaalala ng ika-50 anibersayong ng Leyte Landing.
