Donald Rumsfeld, the secretary of Defense under both Gerald Ford and George W. Bush, has died. He was 88.
Rumsfeld, both the youngest and second-oldest person to have served as secretary of Defense, died surrounded by family in Taos, New Mexico, his family said in a statement.
“History may remember him for his extraordinary accomplishments over six decades of public service, but for those who knew him best and whose lives were forever changed as a result, we will remember his unwavering love for his wife Joyce, his family and friends, and the integrity he brought to a life dedicated to country,” the family said in the statement.
