To preserve General Patton’s legacy and example of leadership, while promoting other military leaders, for future generations of leaders through support, promotion, expansion, and modernization of the General George Patton Museum by cultivating a robust community of donors and sponsorships while maintaining lasting relationships with the military, veteran, and civilian communities for generations to come.
General Patton exemplified the uncompromising determination of a born leader. He was relentless in the pursuit of victory from his command of the 1 st Provisional Tank Brigade in World War I to his legendary career in the Mediterranean and European Theaters of World War II. Patton’s name was revered by his comrades and struck terror at the hearts of his enemies.
In our exhibit halls, not only will you discover stories from Patton’s prolific military career, but you’ll also find an exclusive collection of artifacts spanning all the way back to his childhood in California and his participation in the 1912 Olympic Games in Stockholm, Sweden.
Our ROTC Hall, honoring students at the beginning of their military careers, and our 21 st Century exhibits, including an actual fire truck damaged at the Pentagon during the attacks on 9/11, showcase just some of the ways that Patton’s legacy of leadership continues to motivate and inspire Americans to this day.
