"Success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty, and persistence."

-Colin Powell made history by becoming the 12th chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff-the highest military position in the Department of Defense, Oct. 1, 1989. At age 52, he became the youngest officer to serve in this position. Powell made history again when he became the first appointed African American Secretary of State, Jan. 20, 2001.
