As a member of the protocol staff of HQ USEUCOM from 75-79, I often witnessed social interactions between Manfred Rommel and Gen Patton --- both of who seemed to sincerely love their fathers. I recall particularly a social at the home of Gen Robert Huyser (DCINC for HQ USEUCOM) in which Adm Ruge' (former Naval aide to Rommel and first CNO to Germany after the war) stepped into one of their conversations by saying "No, No, Boys, let me tell you what really happened". The room full of guests went still and we held up dinner for 15 minutes while Adm Ruge' provided the background and detail. Although this event took place almost 35 years ago, I can still recall vividly the love of parent and deep yearning of each man to better understand the parent they had lost early in life. Honorable men never truly die -- they live on through the memories of others.
