Press Release

Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) issued the following statement on the death of Colin Powell:

“Colin Powell was a patriot who dedicated his life to the security of our nation. His distinguished career spanned from a modest beginning as a member of his high school ROTC to some of the most senior positions in our government. Colin believed in the American military as a force for good in our world and that maintaining its dominating strength was essential to protect both liberty and those who serve. I extend my prayers and sympathies to the Powell family and all who knew him.”
