    Statement from the Ambassador of Poland Piotr Wilczek

    It is with deep sadness that I learned of the passing of General Edward Rowny, a great friend of Poland, former arms control negotiator and military advisor to 5 U.S. administrations.

     

    General Rowny was an incredible man. An expert military strategist and brilliant negotiator, he rose to the rank of Lieutenant General in the United States Army.

     

    From his upbringing in a Polish-American household in Baltimore, Maryland, to his decades long commitment to promoting Polish history and culture, General Rowny was an eminent leader in Polonia and a dear friend of our Embassy.

     

    I am so grateful that we were able to celebrate General Rowny’s 100th birthday together at my residence with family and friends just a few months ago. These memories will stay with me forever.

     

    We will miss you General.

    Piotr Wilczek
