The Patton family name has been synonymous with the military for generations. General George S. Patton is widely considered one of the most successful combat generals in U.S. history and his son, George Patton IV, was a major general in the Korean and Vietnam Wars.

The Patton family continues to honor the General’s legacy through its commitment to diversity employment and to helping veterans and their families cope with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, social isolation, and pain-related issues.
