On behalf our nation’s Veterans, we are all saddened by the passing of one of America’s great warriors. Senator John McCain’s life of courage and sacrifice continued a legacy of selfless service begun by his family over one hundred years ago.
He will be missed by all of those who have worn the uniform and all of those who love America. Senator McCain and his family are in the thoughts and prayers of America’s Veterans.
