Gen. MacArthur's Farewell Address

Gen. MacArthur's Farewell Address - No. 850DL

Delivered before the Corps of Cadets of the United States Military Academy at West Point on May 12, 1962, upon acceptance of the Sylvanus Thayer Award for service to his nation. The General spoke without a prepared address.  Without even notes. And yet, this moving address commits to words as never before the creed of the Long Gray line. it does more. It honors with eloquence the American soldier--his courage, his sacrifices, his deeds.
