Joyce Statement Mourning the Passing of Colin Powell
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Dave Joyce (OH-14) released the following statement mourning the passing of former Secretary of State and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Colin Powell:
“Colin Powell was a patriot whose leadership served as a guiding light to the United States during pivotal moments in history, from the fall of the Soviet Union to the rise of global terrorism. To say that he had a profound impact on the world would be an understatement.
“During the years in which he proudly served his country, Colin Powell not only defended our democracy but also advanced freedom across the globe. I have no doubt that his legacy will continue to shape the future of America and hope that his courage, integrity, and honor will serve as an inspiration for all those looking to join public service.
“Please join Kelly and I in praying for the Powell family and their many loved ones who grieve this great loss.”
