World War II-dated airmail envelope, 9.5 x 4.25, to his sister Miss Anne W. Patton, 1540 Oak Grove Ave, San Marino, California. Signed as a censor in the upper left, "G. S. Patton, Jr." Postmarked on March 7th, 1945. In good does have some rubbing of his signature affecting the Last name, with some light creasing otherwise in good condition.

American troops had already made a crossing on March 7—a signal moment in the war and in history, as an enemy army had not crossed the Rhine since Napoleon accomplished the feat in 1805. Patton grandly made his crossing, and from the bridgehead created there, Old Blood and Guts and his 3rd Army headed east and captured Frankfurt on the 29th.
