For more than 50 years, the former secretary of state has devoted his life to public service. He served in the U.S. Army for 35 years, rising to the rank of four-star general, and has held senior military and diplomatic positions across four presidential administrations. From 1987-89, Powell served as President Ronald Reagan’s national security advisor. He served from 1989-93 as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff for both Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton, and was not only the youngest officer to serve in the position, but was also the first African-American to do so. Under President George W. Bush, Powell was appointed the 65th secretary of state and was unanimously confirmed by the U.S. Senate as the nation’s first African-American in the role.
