The American and South Carolina state flags fly over Patton Hall, home of Third Army/U.S. Army Central; in front sits an old M48 series "Patton Tank." It was the third tank to be officially named after Gen. George S. Patton, commander of the U.S. Third Army during World War II and one of the earliest American advocates for the use of tanks in battle.
