“May God have mercy for my enemies, because I wont.” General George S. Patton - United States Third Army 🇺🇸 #luxembourg #unitedstatesmemorial #usmemorial #generalpatton #georgepatton
#Genpatton #generalpatton #wwii . Kristin and I got to look through the scrapbook of one of General Patton’s staff. Kinda cool to see original pictures of General Patton that have never been published.
Ah, suffered a tire blowout situation here. However, turns out where I landed was an interesting place! Main attraction of the area is the General George S. Patton Museum. Managed to take a few pictures of the tanks in display. And the museum features quite a lot of them. - - #Chiriaco #ChiriacoSummit #ChiriacoSummitCA #CaliforniaUSA #USA #UnitedStatesOfAmerica #GeneralPatton #GeneralPattonMemorialMuseum #GeorgeSPatton #MatznerTankPavilion #TankMuseum #Tanks #WorldWarII #WW2 #WorldWarIITanks #WW2Tanks #BattleTanks #CombatTanks #HistorialMuseum #AmericanHistory #TouristAttraction #TouristDestination #FamilyDestination #Selfie .

Last Saturday I rode Patton 💛 -•-•-•-•-•-•-•- I got to ride Patton for the third or fourth time in my life (haha) and jumped him for the first time. He’s such a great horse and I really hope I get the privilege of riding him again and getting to know him better. 🥰 As a part of #nostirrupnovember , we dropped our irons and did posting trots without stirrups. I think I got 340-something. All I know is, with more practice, it becomes less painful. 👌🏻😆 -•-•-•-•-•-•-•- After the lesson, the whole group went on a small hack around the field. Patton and @catesinibaldi ’s horse had a tiny spook at something (I still don’t know what), but we were all fine. :,) It was great to go on a hack as a group and even @sydney._.porter tagged along on foot. (Don’t worry, I let her get on near the end.😉) -•-•-•-•-•-•-•- 🌹People in these pictures: @catesinibaldi , @sydney._.porter , @juliamitchell_05 , @_.katie.blaes._ , and @its.lydia 🌹 -•-•-•-•-•-•-•- ⚠️Disclaimer: I know I used the same music for two of the edits, but oh well, I must really enjoy that song. 😅⚠️ -•-•-•-•-•-•-•- #fun #grouphack #grouplesson #lessonequestrian #dun #dunhorse #horse #generalpatton
Monday Morning Motivation. Maybe I should just change it to Tuesday Morning Motivation? Just Kidding. With yesterday being the Veterans Day (observed), I felt it appropriate to use a military leader for today's quote. General George S. Patton had a hard-driving and very colorful leadership style that was needed during world war II. We here at Omcor are extremely grateful from the bottom of our hearts for all the veterans that have sacrificed for all us here in the United States of America! . . . . . . #omcorhomes #azremodeling #phoenixflips #flippingarizona #azflippers #azremodel #azconstruction #scottsdalehomesforsale #realestateflipping #azcontractors #mesarealestate #homeflipping #hometransformation #azsmallbusiness #tilefloors #motivational_quotes #azhomes #arizonahomes #flippinghomes #fixerupperinspired #successmotivation #scottsdalerealestate #houseflipper #phoenixrealestate #realestateinvestments #successaddict #azrealtor #arizonarealestate #veteransday #generalpatton
#JackedKirby - The Sub-Machine Guns Of World War II... 💥💥💥 While Jack was winding down his time at DC before returning to Marvel in 1974 he was fulfilling contractual obligations by creating random issues of books and small runs here or there. Some of these were Justice Inc, Kobra and few more... but one that was a bit special to him was The Loser stories in Our Fighting Forces. The Losers were a rag tag group of soldiers that were behind the lines of WWII, something Kirby had first hand experience with. So when he had the opportunity to take over the book as both writer and pencilled, he jumped at the chance!!!! 💥💥💥 Kirby took over the book with #Issue151 and continued until he turned it back over to the original creator Bob Kahniger. While Kirby was on the book he changed the tone of the series to make it a bit more serious... properly reflecting on a war that he had the displeasure of fighting in himself. At the time people criticized this tonal shift, but now the run is looked back upon fondly as some of Jack’s more intricate work while at DC that wasn’t involving the 4th World. Many of his personal touches found a way into the stories and material... like in #Issue152 from December of 1974!!! 💥💥💥 In the main story the Losers find themselves pinned down in a supposedly friendly town by Nazi’s... and they are almost done for until they are saved by General Patton himself!!! (Pic 1) This is a cool tidbit cause Kirby actually served under Patton in WWII... so it’s a bit of life finding it’s way into the art! He also did this really cool two page reference feature on the sub-machine guns of WWII, highlighting the different types of guns the various countries in the war used in actual combat (Pic 2/3). Its little touches like this that make Kirby’s war comics that much more authentic... he lived it, not just imagined it!!! 💥💥💥 #JackKirby #KingKirby #Kirby #TheLosers #OurFightingForces #Comic #Comics #ComicBook #ComicBooks #70sComics #ComicsOfThe70s #igcomiccommunity #WarComics #GeneralPatton #GunsOfWWII #igcomicfamily #igcomics 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 Thanks to all the veterans for all the years of service for our great country!!!!

G'day peeps, A full day spent getting a wholesome modelling fix with Brothers. Made some decent progress on the Tamiya 1/48 M4A3E8 Sherman "Fury" and Tamiya 1/35 Panzer III, with attachments adhered to the hull, with the tanks tracks next to be adhered, and the Panzer III being reprimed due to a different surface finish requirement from the original prime coat. So far so good. A word to the wise, leave not your work unattended in the presence of an utter oaf. They tend to get deranged ideas in your absence. #Tamiya #Fury #Tank #WorldWarII #WWII #WorldWar2 #WW2 #WW2History #FallOfTheThirdReich #GeneralPatton #2ndArmoredDivision #HellOnWheels #USArmy #ShermanTank #M4A3E8Sherman #FuryFilm #FuryTank #148scale #Panzer #PanzerIII #Panzerkampfwagen #Wehrmacht #GermanArmy #Blitzkrieg #NorthAfricaCampaign #ErwinRommel #TheDesertFox #135scale #Airbrush #HobbyCoSydney

Veterans Day. General George S. Patton, colorized. #generalpatton #nofilter #veteransday
Should’ve posted this yesterday but it holds true today as well. Just because it’s what we did doesn’t mean it’s who we still are. If you’re reading this and you’re a vet that thinks the your best days are behind you then find a new objective and get there. #atlasstrengthshop . . #Repost @bravowhiskee ・・・ Somewhere in the #Army they make you scream this over and over.

Had the pleasure of seeing another masterpiece in theaters with my favorite person @prim_rose_arts.
A big thank you to those who have served in the United States Military. It was a pleasure to have served as I volunteered to do so. I was never told or forced to, serving was my calling and I wish I could've fully retired as I felt the ARMY was my calling but my body felt differently and my enlistment only lasted 3 years. But, I still have the privilege to have served with some of the greatest of all time and I don't regret one day I served. I wish I could do it all over again honestly, but my time has done and passed already and time to let these younger men and women protect our great nation. I do not want thanks as it was an honor and privilege to do what I did. Tanker LEAD the way! HOOAH! #proudveteran #usarmy #armyvet #disabledveteran #beardedveteran #chubbybeardedandtattooed #chubbybeardeddisabledveteran #veteran #MsgtBenavjdez #AudieMurphy #GeneralPatton #veterantanker #19k #tankersleadtheway

WE THANK OUR VETERANS (2, 3, and 4-legged) 🇺🇸🐾❤ CHIPS – WORLD WAR II The most decorated military dog of World War II was a German Shepherd/Collie/Husky mix named Chips. Part of the Dogs for Defense program initiated after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Chips was given to the military by his owner in New York. Chips served in General Patton’s Seventh Army in Germany, Italy, Sicily, France, and North Africa. He was awarded the Silver Star for valor and the Purple Heart for his injuries. Unfortunately, the military later took back the medals, claiming that Chips was only equipment and not eligible to receive the medals. Chips has many stories of heroics and valor on the battlefields of WWII, but perhaps his two most famous acts happened in the same day. While in Sicily, Chips and his fellow troops became pinned down by machine gun fire from a pillbox. Chips singlehandedly charged into the pillbox and captured all four Italian soldiers inside. Later that night, while the soldiers were asleep, Chips heard enemy soldiers approaching for an ambush, then woke and alerted the men. The soldiers were able to capture every enemy soldier thanks to Chips, who had saved their lives. #chips #germanshepherd #collie #bordercollie #husky #wardog #military #ww2 #veteransday #worldwar2 #veteran #hero #canine #dogsfordefense #generalpatton #generalpattonsseventharmy #army #silverstar #purpleheart #dog #thankyou #distinguishedservicecross

#grandpa was a #combatengineer in #wwii . My aunt passed along a story about him once, and I desperately want it to be true... Apparently, during the #normandy landings #sherman #tanks kept getting killed by German #panzerfaust crews. Grandpa Rowe rigged logs to some of the #armor to help keep the #vehicles from bouncing upward as they burst through the #french #hedgerows , (stone markers that divided the farmer's fields.) exposing their weak underbellies. Here's my favorite part, according to #familylegend #generalpatton comes rolling up in his command car, stops and says, "Who put that sh*t on my tank." My #grandfather raises his hand, "Me sir." "Carry-on #sergeant !" And that was the short conversation my grandfather had with George S Patton in 1944. #killinnazis #worldwarii #1942 #nazis #soldier

I always loved listening to your war stories. On hot summer nights, fireflies lighting up the back yard, we kids would gather around on the patio and sit completely mesmerized as you told us about your war. General Patton, that historical moment when your friend and fellow soldier was slapped by that general and about the Battle of the Bulge where you fought bravely. This battle was the largest and bloodiest single battle fought by the United States in WWII, and the 2nd bloodiest battle in American history. I am so proud that you survived, Papaw, and I got to spend many years with you. I miss you! #veteransday #WWII #battleofthebulge #generalpatton
Thank you to all our veterans out there! Without you, none of this would be possible!#handnperformance #38caddy #generalpatton #cadillacmodel70 #38cadillac

Commemorating #veteransday 🇺🇸 with this photo of my dad, who served as Staff Sgt in the US Army during WWII in North Africa, Sicily, and Italy. #worldwar2 #greatestgeneration #generalpatton #111118 #11november #november11 🙏🌺
My dad, Wally Stone...drove a truck for Patton and witnessed the liberation of Buchenwald. His memories of the liberation were so atrocious, he could never even talk about it. The only story i heard was...christmas eve,1944, while stuck somewhere in Germany, Patton was having a Christmas Party for officers. So he made my father, a Jew, drive a truck to God knows where to buy BOOZE for his party. Apparently, my father being Jewish meant that he really didn't need to take the night off for Christmas. #veteransday #usarmy #generalpatton #nazigermany #worldwar2

An early morning Workspace Wednesday kicks off with the completion of "Wardaddy" (Brad Pitt's character from the film) miniature for the Tamiya 1/48 M4A3E8 Sherman "Fury" build. Used a combination of Ammo by Mig Jimenez, Tamiya and Games Workshop paints for this mini, with the face being painted with the Ammo by Mig Flesh Tones Sets, building up from a dark brown foundation up to the final light flesh highlights, blended with applications of Games Workshop's "Reikland Fleshshade" following each layer of Mig acrylic paint. Might paint on his sergeant chevrons and 2nd Armoured Division patch on later... #Tamiya #Fury #Tank #WorldWarII #WWII #WorldWar2 #WW2 #WW2History #FallOfTheThirdReich #GeneralPatton #2ndArmoredDivision #HellOnWheels #USArmy #ShermanTank #M4A3E8Sherman #FuryFilm #FuryTank #DavidAyer #BradPitt #ShiaLaBeouf #JonBernthal #MichaelPeña #LoganLerman #ScottEastwood #ScaleModel #PlasticKit #148scale #AmmoByMigJimenez #Airbrush #HobbyCoSydney

Goood morning! General Patton here, looking for my forever family. I didn’t grow up in a home like most dogs so when I meet a new four legged friend I don’t have the best manners. BUT once I get to know them I love to play and cuddle (ask my two foster siblings) Foster Mom is working on my leash reactivity (again with the manners). We found that if I wear my backpack and carry something I am much better. I live with two kids that I love to play with. I am not one for patios, but I do love car rides. And I have been told that I could be a professional shadow. No matter where my mom is I like to follow her and lay at her feet. So... if you like long walks and evenings on the couch I’m your man. Apply to meet me today at thelovepit.org ! #gogeneralpattongo #gopattongo
The Church of Our Savior (1867) in San Gabriel, CA. Patton was baptized here, and taught Sunday school at this church. Amazing. #WWII #WorldWar2 #GeorgePatton #GeneralPatton #GeorgeSmithPatton #USArmy #US3rdArmy #3rdArmy #California
