After Patton's death his dog Willie named after William The Conquer was shipped back to the United States to Green Meadows his master's home, to live out the rest of his life. I'm sure the General would have approved.

A twelve foot high bronze statue of Patton and his dog Willie stand at the General Patton Memorial Museum off Interstate 10, located in
Chiriaco Summet, California USA
