Over a decade of research has yielded a concise portrayal of the many accolades given to a man whose military career spanned over fifty years and three major wars. General MacArthur was awarded every combat decoration the U.S. Military can bestow, plus over thirty-five foreign decorations, which includes the Medal of Honor, three Distinguished Service Crosses, seven Silver Stars, the Distinguished Flying Cross, three Bronze Star Medals, two Purple Hearts and the Air Medal.
