Today in Philippine History: "I Shall Return"

MARCH 20, 1942
U.S. General Douglas MacArthur issues his speech “I came out of Bataan and I shall Return” in a small railway township in Terowie, South Australia. In his journey to Adelaide, MacArthur shortened his words to “I came through and I shall return”. These words made him dear to the Filipinos and repeats it often in public appearances until his return two and a half years later.
