My objects are the uniforms of George S. Patton; my grandfather was a close friend of his. It’s significant because my grandfather knew Patton before WWII and he fought in WWII. He was the super in Patton’s building and he had dinner with him often.
The object came from Patton’s wife who gave it to my grandmother. Its nothing special they aren’t his dress uniforms but they are still cool to me, and my family likes them. The object really isn’t in my house but it is in my aunts house but I’ve seen it once or twice.
I only learned about this object recently through my dad I had no idea it was in my family.
I look at this as a symbol of my family’s patriotism and mine.
