General Carlos P. Romulo
Major General Carlos P. Romulo, born on 14 January 1899, was marked for a distinguished career, a multifaceted one that brought him outstanding excellence in the fields of Journalism, Soldiery, Diplomacy, and Education – and history marks him at the top of these dimensions.
Serving in the Pacific War as a Major, he rapidly bridged the ranks to Brigadier General. The Filipino remember with candor “The Voice of Freedom,” which came through the airwaves when all seemed lost in 1942. He led the United Nations Assembly in 1954 to 1955, the first Filipino to serve in that capacity.
