Albert Patterson


Albert Patterson was born in Rocky Mountain Virginia to the union of James E. Patterson and Thelma Marie McGee on August 19, 1945. As a civilian before Vietnam War he was a factory and steel mill worker for 4 years. He joined the service and did his tour in Vietnam as a gunner (sharp shooter) and he was honorably discharged.
