Gen. Colin Powell died early Monday morning, according to a statement from his family on Powell’s official Facebook page.

Powell’s family stated that the cause of death was due to complications from the COVID- 19 virus, although Powell was fully vaccinated.

As news of Powell’s death circulated, current and past defense officials commented on Powell’s legacy, both as an international statesman and a mentor.

While on an overseas trip in the Republic of Georgia, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin delivered an emotional statement to traveling press on the death of Powell, noting his role as the first African-American Secretary of State and a man who was “respected around the globe” in that role.

“The world lost one of the greatest leaders that we have ever witnessed,” Austin said. “Alma [his wife] lost a great husband, and the family lost a tremendous father. And I lost a tremendous personal friend and mentor.”
