LBJ VISITS VIETNAM Following the end of the seven-nation Manila Conference, President Lyndon Johnson visits Corregidor then makes a surprise visit to Cam Ranh Bay, South Vietnam, to inspect, decorate eat, joke and visit informally with the troops. It's the first visit to a war zone by an American President since 1943.
LBJ VISITS CORREGIDOR After attending the Manila Conference, LBJ visits Corregidor Island. A Filipino guide takes him to Malinta Tunnel, where General Douglas MacArthur established his headquarters. A memorial dedicated to the Battle of Corregidor marks the area's history.

MACARTHUR'S PROMISE FULFILLED We turn the calendar back to January of 1941 and watch the Japanese engulf the Philippines, bomb Manila, and capture the remaining Americans on Corregidor. From his new post as Military Commander in Australia we hear Gen. MacArthur thunder the ominous warning, "I will return." Most recently, we find him with Admiral Nimitz, pouring over maps as a gigantic armada sails on such a mission. Ships of all descriptions, including giant carriers with their hundreds of war birds, are in this fleet. Under a flack-filled sky, preparations are made to land troops at Lingayen. Landing boats race shoreward, and in one of them is General Douglas MacArthur. He wades ashore--his promise is fulfilled. And his mechanized army heads for Manila.
