General Douglas MacArthur

Description
General MacArthur's famous old and battered corn cob pipe was a familar fixture. MacArthur smoked this pipe in less formal occasions, usually outdoors while chatting with the troops on the front lines. He is standing most likely on the deck of his flagship moments before going ashore at Lingayen Gulf in Luzon. In an inscription on the back of the picture, Mydans wrote: "Where are his hands? They're in his back pocket. It's his usual position."
