MacArthur and FDR meet and Inspect the 7th US Army Division

The 7th didn't know it, but it was on its way to Leyte.

PS The reason MacArthur looks so dour is that he hadn't been told why he'd been ordered to Hawaii.

The Navy had a slick presentation all ready to sell its case - Formosa and then the China coast. MacArthur had to do it off the cuff.
