PITTSBURGH, October 18, 2021 – ACA Connects President and CEO Matthew M. Polka issued the following statement on the passing of Gen. Colin Powell:
“Americans will remember Gen. Colin Powell for a long time as a model soldier, diplomat, White House advisor and a voice of wisdom and reason who reassured the country that it can meet any challenge by living up to its best ideals. Gen. Powell leaves a remarkable record that we are proud to honor and recognize as so many others around the nation are properly doing today.
“We want to express our support and prayers for Gen. Powell’s family, including NCTA-The Internet & Television Association President & CEO Michael Powell, on the loss of this fine man. They should know that America is a great country because people like Gen. Powell led her with unselfish devotion.”
