Colin Powell

Biography

American military hero for his leadership in the Gulf War in January 1991. He served as the 12th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Department of Defense, from October 1, 1989 to September 30, 1993, under both President George Bush and President Bill Clinton.

The son of Jamaican immigrants, he grew up in the Bronx, After getting a BS and MBA, he entered the U.S. Army in 1958 and rose to the post of Assistant to President Bush for National Security, 1987. In his posts, including Vietnam in 1962, his conduct has earned him the Bronze Star, the Air Medal and the Purple Heart. He was Knighted by Queen Elizabeth on 12/15/1993 for his ability in the Gulf War.

A strong family man, he married Alma Johnson in 1957 and has three grown kids. He has been quoted as saying that he is "comfortable with myself, but too quick to anger," and reflecting his personal life, "What else is there in life but family?"

After publishing "My American Journey," 9/25/1995, he appeared on talk shows and promo tours. His popularity is so great that were he to run for President, his success seems assured; however, his wife was strongly against such a move. As the first black president, she feels that he would be a target. He himself said that "did not have a fire in his belly" for the job. What Powell chooses to do is run "America's Promise," his crusade to enlist corporations, government, nonprofit organizations and millions of citizens into giving every child at risk five things: an ongoing with a caring adult, a safe place to go after school, a healthy start, a marketable skill and a chance to serve others.

On 12/16/2000, 11:44:40 CST (CNN time) Colin Powell was officially named by George W. Bush as Secretary of State. He was sworn in on 1/20/2001, 6:20 PM EST, Washington, D.C.

After receiving a diagnosis of prostate cancer a few months ago, the U.S. Secretary of State underwent surgery on December 15, 2003. He is expected to make a full recovery.

President Bush accepted Powell’s resignation on Friday, November 12, 2004, and on November 15, 2004, the White House released the news of the resignation.
