The bronze statues of MacArthur, Quezon and landing party at Red Beach are about the only thing still standing in this area after Super Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda). The surrounding buildings and trees are shattered and leveled, but the statues stand tall. Says volumes about a by-gone era when things were built with pride and for keeps. Historically, an extremely important marker of the fulfilled commitment of Americans to Filipinos during World War II -- also perhaps part of a by-gone era when America took it's commitments and roles in the world more seriously and prioritized its battles more carefully?
