Letter: Seeing info on Gen. Patton’s family life

I believe Patton had at least one son.

I recently watched “Patton” on TV starring George C. Scott. It was a good story about Gen. Patton in WW II, but the part I saw said nothing about his family.

I believe Patton had at least one son. A friend of mine from high school became a Midshipman at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis and told me Patton’s son was his tactical officer.

Years later, I heard Patton’s son commanded the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment in Vietnam.

Since then, I went to the Armor School in Fort Knox, Ky., for courses and heard that Patton’s son was head of that school.

Does anyone know anything about Gen. Patton’s family life?
