Tim Beasley as "General Patton"
Want to give your “troops“ some "heavy metal" firepower and courageous “home of the brave” fighting spirit to roll over the trenches and smash down the fortifications of obstacles to success???? General Patton is the man!
Tim Beasley has performed for over 20 years as an authentic and truly accurate General Patton look alike and speaker for many formal military bases and patriotic events as well as having huge troop-loads of fun by spicing up many “Red White and Blue" sales promotions. His very believable impersonation of “Old Blood and Guts” as a motivational speaking special guest is a highly recognized leadership icon, combining powerful positive thinking with American pride.
Tim enjoys portraying General Patton for a wide variety of national clients, adding "stars & stripes" attitude to companies, brand name products and services and corporations of all manners of business. Many Fortune 500 corporations have Tim appear as "Patton" to excite and motivate their sales teams to out-think, out-manuever and out-perform their competitors in a rousing, cheer-provoking pep-rally of "Let's Win The Battle Of The Marketplace!" Also as a national FOUR STAR MOTIVATIONAL - INSPIRATIONAL SPEAKER, many appearances are for professional groups and associations such as "first responders" Fire Chiefs, EMS, Police and Sheriffs Associations, for generating progressive and positive thinking, self improvement, confidence, teamwork and achievement in a program titled "Accept The Challenges" See the list and also examples of these many successful speaking and appearance engagements.
Coincidentally and appropriately, Tim is now also the same age range as General George Patton was during the most famous battles of ETO - WWII, and a relatively big fellow like Patton, the same height, weight, sharp-eyed eagle-like facial features, even the real and authentic Patton twangy voice! ..( however, can also mimic actor George C. Scott's gravely Hollywood version voice for the masses who aren't informed).
Being a top historian on General Patton's personal life and military career, Tim's knowledge and appearance will bring Patton back to life in startling clarity, able to converse as Patton himself would, with the most educated of WWII fans and historians. This has moved many of those elder veterans who actually knew Patton personally to remark that Tim's "Patton" is an outstanding performance ( SEE PHOTO COLLAGES BELOW ).
A recent national "Accept The Challenges' appearance was for the annual Desert SW Fire & EMS Leadership Conference in Glendale, AZ at the Renaissance Westgate Hotel & Conference Center, 3/28/14.
After every speaking engagement, attendees all want photos with "General Patton!"
There are two uniquely "different" styles to Tim's Patton portrayal. As mentioned, he can either deliver his popular Hollywood-style high-powered fun "parody impersonation" well known from the Academy Award winning movie PATTON of 1970 ala actor George C. Scott, in Scott's gravely-gritty voicing impressions, or much more uniquely, as a truly accurate and historic formal performance with the correct voice, pacing, mood and attitude of the real General Patton. True historians who knew Patton, and heard his live talks, speeches and recordings know the big difference!
His formal appearances include for the US Army TV world-wide broadcast of their 230th Birthday Ball Celebration in Washington, DC, also at General Patton’s honored U.S. Military Academy at West Point in New York. As General Patton, Tim also performed for many and wide variety of national Army - Air Force base events, U.S.O. & M.W.R. fundraisers and also acted as guest host for the tour of historic military homes at the US Army’s Fort Monroe. Tim has also acted in his General Patton role for TV commercials, corporate video presentations, festivals and other patriotic and civic events.
A side-by-side comparison of Tim Beasley, center frame, with the very real General George Patton from 2 historic WWII photos. . .Tim's photo, by the way, was not a staged-shot, but just a random photo taken as "Patton" obliged the "Cumberland Goes To War," ( Cumberland MD's week long city-wide Veterans Day event) with an inspection of the WWII re-enactors' encampment, for the enjoyment of WWII historians and buffs.
His biggest event and performance as "Patton" was as the opening entertainer and speaker for the very prestigious US Army 230th Birthday Ball Celebration held at the historic Hilton Washington, in Washington DC. He shared stage with Vice President Dick Cheney, Emmy Award winner Susan Lucci (emcee) , the Army Show, and the very top brass of the US Army (Chief of Staff Gen Peter Schoomaker, Vice Chief of Staff Gen Dick Cody, Secretary of the Army Francis Harvey, Sergent Major of the Army Kenneth Preston) and top Pentagon officials. The grand event had over 1200+ distinguished guests. For this very high-level national and world-wide event, the US Army wanted only the best. Actually inquiring for and recruiting Tim to perform as 'Patton," ( from all of the professional actors specializing in this portrayal ), the US Army's engagement deemed him the best "Patton" performer in the world.
( Quote From Machelle Eitniear of Army Television, The Pentagon, Washington, DC.
"Thank you for your support of our event. Your presence set the tone for the evening!")

A bit more here about having "Patton" for your fun and exciting sales and marketing events, awards banquets, motivational meetings etc. In this delivery, "Patton" adds a multi-megaton blast of lambasting the companies' competitors. The famous "flag speech" performance is the center focus, colored with direct-hits on the competition's weaknesses and teamed up with hilarious and cheer-provoking references to slackers and other obvious speed-bumps to the clients' forward sales success.....it's always a winner, and like "Patton" said, "Americans love a winner!

After quite a few years of searching for the best authentic and actual WWII vintage uniform items, especially the Army Regulation Officers Tunic Coat ( as General Patton wore in several of his historic photographs ), Tim is proud to now have in his General Patton's uniform ensemble museum-quality editions. As the vast majority of those coats sizes were equal to standard "Medium" in size ( 36, 38, 40, 42 ), an equivilant size 44 Large (same sizes as General Patton and Tim Beasley) was extremely rare to find. This fine example below, with authentic WWI & WWII medals and Third Army insignia now completes his uniform in a grand manner!
The medals are all authentic, WWI & WII issues, presented in the order Patton wore them.
The equestrian riding pants seen featured in Tim's photos are his dad's, Ed Beasley, made in USA Anvil Brand of 1942.
Authentic Colt 45 S.A. 1873 "Peacemaker" with qenuine El Paso Saddlery holster and US Army gun belt, known by collectors as a "Patton rig" also featuring Patton's "compass holder" ( which is actually a handcuffs case ) and 45-caliber cartridge holder not shown, with helmet liner detailed as 4-Star General, with 3rd Army insignia.
Major Veterans Day Event in Weirsdale, FL near famous community 'The Villages." This grand event known as 'Guardians of Freedom" was a week long celebration.
