General MacArthur and Marcos War Medal Photo Controversy- True or Fake?

It is alleged that the famous picture above of General MacArthur personally decorating a World War 2 War medal to then Filipino Soldier/Leader/War Hero Ferdinand Marcos Sr. is a FAKED reproduction of an actual picture for another Filipino soldier. 

It is claimed that the left is the real picture and the right one showing Marcos was "edited".... How true? You be the judge.
