GENERAL JONATHAN M. WAINWRIGHT IV - AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED 8/1 - DOCUMENT 251515
 
JONATHAN M. WAINWRIGHT
Jonathan Wainwright sends an autograph letter saying that policy says that he is not able to answer the question.
Autograph Letter Signed: "J.M. Wainwright/General USA", 7¼x10½, 1947 August 1, Fort Sam Houston, Texas. In full: "I appreciate your interest, but I regret that due to policy, I cannot answer the question which you submit. Enclosed [not present] find my autographed photo and accept my kind regards." West Point graduate Jonathan Wainwright (1883-1953) first went to the Philippines, where his father had died suppressing an insurrection, in 1908. As a Captain with the 82nd Infantry Division in World War I, he participated in the American offensives in France in 1918, which compelled Germany's surrender. Back in the Philippines in World War II, he skillfully deployed outnumbered U.S. and Filipino troops to delay invading Japanese forces and buy time to prepare the Bataan Peninsula for a last stand in the islands. After General MacArthur was ordered back to Australia in March 1942, Wainwright took charge of the heroic American defense, "the battling bastards of Bataan," and a final stand on the island fortress of Corregidor. Out of ammunition and supplies, Wainwright surrendered the U.S. forces on May 6, 1942. Freed from a Japanese prison camp near war's end, he attended the Japanese surrender on the U.S.S. Missouri in Tokyo Bay, September 2, 1945. He was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor (and his fourth star) in 1945. Lightly creased.
