I had an EE Uncle from ATT who followed Patton in charge of rebuilding .comm stuff for the allies, telephones in them daze....

and like Patton, he suffered in a Jeep wreck, and was medically discharged, and on nitroglycerine tablets for rest of his life......I think Patton was killed in his wreck.....
