Crapo Statement on Passing of General Colin Powell

Washington, D.C.--U.S. Senator Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) issued the following statement regarding the news of the passing of General Colin Powell: 

“General Colin Powell was a venerated public servant.  His service as a four-star general, the first African-American Secretary of State and the first African-American Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff left an indelible mark on American national security policy and diplomacy.  General Powell earned immense respect at home and abroad--as evidenced by receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom twice.  He will be greatly missed.  I offer my sincere condolences to his family and loved ones during this difficult time.”
