An impressively long and successful career in the United States military coupled with the bravery and loyalty demonstrated in Bataan during World War 2 led for Americans to rally behind General Douglas MacArthur for the Republican candidate for presidency against Roosevelt. Signs and other campaign items began appearing in 1942, just after MacArthur and his family were airlifted out of the Japanese attack on Bataan in the Philippines.
