Colin L. Powell sends a typed letter of thanks for the support.
Typed Letter Signed: "Cl. L. Powell" as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, 1p, 7¼x7½. Washington, D.C., 1992 April 14. To Neil Allen, Azusa, California. In full: "Thank you fro the kind words in your recent letter. On behalf of the fine young men and women who performed in such an outstanding manner during the Persian Gulf War, I appreciate your support. Enclosed is the autograph you requested [not present]. Because of the volume of mail, I must limit autographs to one per request. However, I am pleased you took the time to write. Good luck to you and the boys and with your autograph collection. With best wishes, Sincerely," Colin Luther Powell, a Vietnam veteran and former national security advisor to President Reagan (1987), was promoted to Four-Star General in April 1989. From October 1, 1989-September 30, 1993, he served as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, overseeing 28 crises, including the invasion of Panama (1989) and Operation Desert Storm during the 1991 Persian Gulf War. After he published his autobiography, My American Journey, and toured to promote it in 1995, there was speculation that he would run for President in 1996. Powell, who has twice been awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, announced that he would not seek any political office in 1996. From 2001-2005, Powell was the highest-ranking Black government official in U.S. history as George W. Bush's Secretary of State. Fine condition.
