On June 15th, the House of Representatives passed the Bonus Bill by 209 to176. A day later the Senate defeated it 62 to18.
The veterans were ordered to leave Washington and when they refused, they were driven by force from Washington camps on 28th July, by troops under the command of General Douglas MacArthur.
General Douglas MacArthur defended his actions, with the claim that the 10,000 USA war veterans were communists.
