One of my early heroes was General Douglas MacArthur. His image continues untarnished in my mind until this day. On a recent trip to the Philippine Islands, I met an officer of the Philippine military who confirmed to me a story I had heard as a boy. He said that in the Philippine Army, roll was called each formation as in armies all over the world; however, after the last name was called in the Philippine Army, the unit commander would call the name, "Douglas MacArthur" to which one of the unit members would respond, "Present".
