Bulkeley 68kVice Admiral John Duncan Bulkeley's distinguished military career began when he graduated from the Naval Academy in 1933. He was decorated with the Congressional Medal of Honor for his many actions, which included the rescue of General Douglas MacArthur, his family and staff from Corregidor in 1942, by way of motor torpedo boat. Bulkeley's leadership during that experience in the Philippines has been immortalized in the movie "They Were Expendable." John Ford directed the film that starred Robert Montgomery as Bulkeley; the cast also includes John Wayne, Ward Bond and Donna Reed. At the age of 32, Bulkeley commanded more than 17,000 troops during the D-Day invasion. Bulkeley participated in the 50-Year Memorial of the D-Day invasion off the coast of Normandy where he reminded all in attendance that the true heroes of World War II were the ones who did not return.Bill Gonyo

Bulkeley 190kThe U.S. Navy christened this Arleigh Burke class guided-missile destroyer on June 24, 2000 at Litton's Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula, Miss. DDG-84 was named in honor of Navy Vice Adm. John Duncan Bulkeley, (1911-1996). Bulkeley received the Medal of Honor, Navy Cross, and numerous other decorations for his heroic actions during World War II. This illustration captures items from throughout his naval career. Hes pictured (top left) from his days as a Naval Academy Midshipman and as a Vice Admiral. The lower left corner shows PT 41 and the PT 35 motor torpedo boats, which Bulkeley commanded to evacuate Army Gen. Douglas MacArthur and President Quezon from the Philippines. He destroyed several Japanese planes, surface combatants, and merchant ships. The ship pictured in the center right of the drawing is the destroyer USS Endicott (DD-495), which Bulkeley commanded during the invasion of Southern France - sinking the German Corvettes Nimet Allah and Capriola.
