“Today, Europe is whole, free and at peace, and history will mark that your inspired statesmanship had something to do with that, George — a lot to do with it.” – Secretary of State Colin Powell in 2003. Secretary of State George P. Shultz worked alongside Gen. Colin Powell during the last two years of the Reagan Administration, with Powell serving as the president’s National Security Advisor. Powell and Shultz implemented a more “conciliatory Soviet policy,” which resulted in numerous arms control treaties, including the Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces Treaty in 1987. At the close of the Reagan administration, Powell was appointed Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Shultz returned to private life. The two remained friends until their passing in 2021.
