It started when I was younger and learned that Douglas MacArthur was given the Medal of Honor for his "Heroic defense" of Bataan. That really rubbed me the wrong way, because no Douglas MacArthur did nothing to earn a Medal of Honor. In fact during the invasion of the Philippines his soldiers nicknamed him Dugout Doug because he never left his HQ on Corregidor. And really he's just an overrated general.

Welcome aboard. I agree Dugout Doug the mamma's boy is way overrated. Tread lightly, he has a fanboy club still.
