| The strategic plan of General Douglas MacArthur to set off the liberation of the Philippines from the Japanese Imperial Forces was accomplished by the Sixth Army under the command of General Walter Krueger when they successfully landed in the Lingayen-Dagupan-San Fabian area in the morning of January 9, 1945.
The major combat units composed of more than two hundred thousand officers and men include the XIV Corps with the 37th and 40th Infantry divisions, 1 Corps with the 5th and 43rd Divisions, 158RCT, 25th Infantry Division, 13th Armored Group, 6th Ranger BAtallion in Army Reserve and the Sixth Army Service Commands (ASCOM). Equally significant was the presence of the guerilla units in Pangasinan, La Union, and Nueva Ecija which paved the way for the liberation operations by their harassment of Japanese soldiers, disruption of military activities and passing on of vital information to the American forces.
