What did General MacArthur say?

I shall return. One month passed by quickly. And yet it was the longest thirty days of my life. I was away from myLot to do something my boss asked me to. I stayed in the Philippines to take a special course. It was something I would never do again. Well, luckily I won’t because by god’s grace, and sleeping in the wee hours of the morning just to study, cram, and study, I passed. Maybe the dream in my previous post was all about my fear of disappointing my boss and failing the course. But now I’m back and it’s nice to be here once more. So what did I miss?

@sol_cee Didn't you have the name of the course written here before? I never heard of that test. He was famous for saying, "Old soldiers never die. They just fade away." He had several other great quotes, too. I do know that my first school secretary worked for him!!!
