Gen. MacArthur visits Bataan in 1945.

Zf421. Gen. MacArthur visits Bataan in 1945. This picture came from the National Museum of American History at this URL, lick here: 

The above URL presentation had this description:

Once Mydans was pulled from the European theater in late 1944, he reunited with Gen. Douglas MacArthur in the Pacific. After the landing at Luzon, MacArthur’s troops made their way into Bataan. Almost three years after Gen. Edward King surrendered Bataan to the Japanese, American troops and Filipino guerrillas recaptured the peninsula. According to LIFE, after many days of battle, General MacArthur surveyed the Japanese dead and issued a communique: So far as can be found, no living Japanese soldier is now on the peninsula (LIFE, Mar 5, 1945).

When did Gen. MacArthur visit the battlefield Bataan in 1942?

The question came up because we read in a 1942 news article that Gen. MacArthur pinned on the MOH Medal on the chest of Lt. Willibald C Bianchi.

I asked my friends for help, because I did not remember when Gen MacArthur visited Bataan in 1942, but nobody came thru yet with the date.

After doing my own research I found this article which states that Gen. MacArthur made his only visit to Bataan on the 10th of Jan. 1942. If true, than the article about Gen MacArthur pinning on the MOH can’t be true because LT. Willibald C Bianchi participated in his actions after the 10th of Jan. 1942.  This article is written by a much respected author, who most likely only does 100% correct work. The article is called: ‘A Dreadful Step’_ Surrender at Luzon, from John M. Taylor. John M Taylor is the son of the famous general Maxwell D. Taylor and wrote a book about his father.
