Mayor Rommel was kind enough to host lunches and tours for newly arrived American soldiers and their families in Stuttgart. In the late 1980s, my wife and I attended one such event, and had the honor of his dining at our table. An honest-to-goodness friend to America and Americans. Our deepest condolences to his family and to the people of Stuttgart.

Condolences to the family for their loss. We were stationed in Stuttgart, Germany from 1977-1980 while Herr Rommel was Mayor. Also, General Patton, son of THE General Patton was my husband's Commander AND life long friends with Herr Rommel. We saw them together in a Memorial parade while stationed in Stuttgart. Also, General Patton would, without notice, drop in on my husband, (at that time, Cpt J. Smith), to see how things were going. Our prayers for peace and comfort to the Rommel family are being sent. Also, we were friends with Herr Rommel's nephew here in Sacramento, CA who worked at the very Sacramento Depot that General Rommel's soldiers were POWs. General Rommel told his soldiers to be gentlemen and respect their captors. The story from the employees who worked at the Sacramento Army Depot (formerly known as the Sacramento Signal Depot) would tell you that General Rommel's soldiers were very respectful. Some of those POWs later came back to visit their captors. Speaks a lot to General Rommel. Rest in peace, Herr Rommel. Col (rUSA) Jack and Christine Smith

Herr Bergermister Rommel was a great Friend of the American Soldier.
When he was the Mayor of Stuttgart; he always made time on his busy schedule to talk to soldiers and their families. He will be greatly missed.

My wife and I were just in Stuttgart 2 weeks ago and I remember seeing him there in 1996 when he retired as Mayor of the city. My father lost 2 cousins serving with his father in Libya during WW11 and I have always had enormous respect for both the Field Marshall and his son Manfred. My condolences to family member.
