Quote:
WASHINGTON (AP) - Raymond T. Odierno, a retired Army general who commanded American and coalition forces in Iraq at the height of the war and capped a 39-year career by serving as the Army's chief of staff, has died, his family said Saturday. He was 67.

"The general died after a brave battle with cancer; his death was not related to COVID," a family statement said. "There are no other details to share at this time. His family is grateful for the concern and asks for privacy."

Odierno died Friday; the family declined to say where. It said funeral and interment information was not yet available.

He was the one who shaved Stephen Colbert's head in June 2009, on orders from President Obama.
