In Memorium to MacArthur - Norfolk, Virginia

 
The MacArthur Memorial was a project set into motion by the mayor of Norfolk in 1960 to remodel the old courthouse into a memorial to General MacArthur's half a century of military service to his nation.  Filled with memrobilia and historical artifacts from throughout his tenure in the United States Army ranging from his gear as a cadet to the Instrument of Surrender designating the Empire of Japan's surrender.  Today, in the recessed floor in the central rotunda, General MacArthur lies next to his wife Jean in the crypt encompassed with the names of all the battles in which he served or commanded throughout his career.  Personally, the most impressive exhibit was the one displaying his port-wartime unifrom from World War II.  I don't think there are that many ribbons honored in today's times as there are on his chest!
