  • Leyte Landing Memorial, otherwise known as MacArthur Landing Memorial is located in Red Beach, Palo, Leyte. This marks the site where American liberation forces of General Douglas MacArthur landed, to fulfill his "I shall return!" Promise to rid the Republic of the Philippines from Japanese occupation. Soon after his landing on 20 October 1944 together with 225 000 soldiers and 600 ships, MacArthur personally led the fast unit against the Japanese forces thus ending their occupation of the Republic of the Philippines. The Memorial consists of large, larger-than-life bronze statues of MacArthur in other important personalities, including our own former president Sergio Osmeña, Jr., who is in an artificial pool, showing how they waded ashore through knee-high water.
