Topic: My father stood 50' from George S Patton.


My father stood 50' from George S Patton during WWII. He was in the 99th ID under Pattons 3rd Army. Out of an entire Company of men him and 2 other guys were the only ones to survive the Battle of The Bulge. Over 150,000 American men lost their lives in the matter of just 1 1/2 months. He heard Patton say. "I do not give a sh*t how many sons-of-Bitches have to die every day, we are going to win this Goddamn War."

He went on to fight in the Battle at Ramegan Bridge and help liberate the Buchenwald Concentration Camp. He the served 11 months after the war assigned as a jeep driver for the Top Brass at the Nuremberg Trials. That is where the ashtray and cigarette box came from I posted photos of. Off of one of the tables at the Nuremberg Trials.
