DAGUPAN COMMEMORATES GEN. MacARTHUR’s 79th LUZON LANDING

Dagupan City has paid tribute anew to the memory and greatness of Gen. Douglas MacArthur during the 79th Luzon Landing Anniversary of the famed United States commander and his men at Bonuan Tondaligan Blue Beach, the site believed to be the actual location where they landed to pursue their mission in liberating the Philippines from Japanese colonization.

Mayor Belen Fernandez led the early morning event on January 9 at the refurbished MacArthur Park as she underscored the significance of emulating the good deeds of MacArthur and other war heroes and building a culture of integrity and accountability in public office.

“Gen. Douglas MacArthur had said his famous line ‘I shall return.’ For me I say, I have returned to help the people of Dagupan,” the local chief executive stated.

Highlight of the affair was a reenactment of the Luzon Landing with MacArthur, U.S. soldiers and Bonuan villagers which was followed by floral offerings at the memorial site by the different offices, government agencies, barangay councils, civil society groups, non-government organizations and other stakeholders.
