[Portrait of General Wainwright]

General Jonathan M. Wainwright
1883 to 1953
HERO OF BATAAN
Medal of Honor Citation
"General Jonathan M. Wainwright, 02131, commanding United States
Army Forces in the Philippines from 12 March to 7 May 1942.
He distinguished himself by intrepid and determined leadership against greatly
superior enemy forces. At the repeated risk of life above and beyond the call of duty
in his position he frequented the firing line of his troops where his presence provided
the example and incentive that helped make the gallant efforts of these men
possible. The final stand on beleaguered Corregidor, for which he was in
an important measure personally responsible, commanded the admiration of
the Nation's allies It reflected the high morale of American arms in the
face of overwhelming odds. General Wainwright's courage and resolution
were a vitally needed inspiration to the then sorely pressed freedom
loving peoples of the world"

THE ANGELS OF BATAAN AND CORREGIDOR


[north face]
"We must remain strong and great in spirit, fixed in our determination to keep the peace of the world. Peace is a militant state which is not secured by wishful thinking. If we are to be sure of our liberty, we must preserve the peace through full cooperation with other peace-loving nations. We must be ready to fight for it, if necessary. Until we can be certain that our security is safe from such treachery as we have suffered at the hands of the Japanese, we must keep our defenses impregnable. That is the lesson of Bataan. That is the trust of all those who suffered from the defeat at Corregidor."

General Jonathan M. Wainwright
1945

"This man, this American eagle taken captive, is now our emblem of unceasing watchfulness and our standard for the eternal battle for universal peace and security. Let us thus remember him for the rest of our human history as the symbol of vigilance and victory. Bataan was his heroism, and his martyrdom was Corregidor."
