Former Secretary of State Colin Powell, the first Black American to serve in the post, died on Monday at the age of 84 due to complications from COVID-19, his family announced
Complications from a breakthrough case of Covid-19 apparently. Despite his service as SecState, he was probably best known for his role (while still in the Army as head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff) in Operation Desert Storm, aka the Liberation of Kuwait in the early 1990s, not to mention the creation of the associated Powell Doctrine.
Rest In Peace
