Michael Robert Patterson was born in Michigan and is the son of a former career United States Army officer. During his formative years, Michael lived in Michigan, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Arkansas and New York.
During his travels with his family he became interested in American History, and particularly in American Military history. These two interests drew him to Arlington National Cemetery, which is an integral part of both. Michael has provided his Arlington National Cemetery website as his gift to America.
Michael is a retired business executive who resides on Long Island, New York, with his wife, Lynne, and pets Zeus, Abbey and Calico. His grown children, son Brian and daughter Casey, live in North Carolina and in Minnesota respectively.
Michael is currently writing what he hopes to be THE definitive book on Arlington National Cemetery.
