Millions of Americans will be remembering "Old Blood and Guts" next week when military bloggers make note of Gen. George S. Patton Jr.'s life. It was 63 years ago Dec. 21 when America's distinguished and controversial WWII Army officer passed away, not on the battlefield, but as the result of injuries sustained in a freak auto accident near Mannheim, Germany, on December 9, 1945.

Patton was being treated for a severe neck injury at the 130th Station Hospital in Heidelberg when he died four days before Christmas 1945. He was buried three days later, December 24, 1945, in the American Cemetery at Hamm, Luxembourg.

A superb compendium of Patton's career, including links to his speeches, diary, famous quotes, photos, posters, articles, comics, newspaper reports, the movie "Patton," website, national museum and much more, has been assembled by Patton expert Dave Logan at his ThirdWaveDave.blogspot.com site.

Brian Kilmeade, Fox & Friends television personality and radio host, in his book "It's How You Play the Game: The Powerful Sports Moments That Taught Lasting Values to America’s Finest," noted that Patton's failures motivated him even more to succeed.

Patton's great-grandniece Patti Patton-Bader is keeping the family name and tradition alive with her ongoing support for our troops. She founded the international troop support organization SoldiersAngels.org and for her effort has been recognized by NBC as America's Favorite Mom.

They named a child Patti Patton? That's just mean.

There is actually a brass plaque on the wall outside the room where he died in the hospital in Heidelberg.
