General Douglas MacArthur and Brig. Gen. Albert M. Jones and their staff inspect defenses on Bataan
At dawn, a PT Boat transported General Douglas MacArthur and his chief of staff, Maj. Gen. Richard K. Sutherland, from Corregidor Island to Mariveles on the Bataan Peninsula. Next, they drove up the East Road to General George E. Parker's headquarters where they talked with II Corps officers and inspected positions in that sector. Moving west across the Pilar-Bagac road MacArthur met General Jonathan M. Wainwright and inspected I Corps installations. When Wainwright offered to show MacArthur their 155mm howitzers, MacArthur replied, "I don't want to see them. I want to hear them." Meanwhile, a Japanese aircraft dropped a message behind U. S. lines that demanded their surrender. This eight hour inspection was Macarthur's only visit to the area.
