Just read the news that McCain has brain cancer. Sad news. I do not admire McCain as a politician. I do admire him as a career military professional. He is a man who survived the terrible fight deck tragedy when a a loose bomb set off an aircraft fueling disaster that killed many. He is the pilot who flew combat missions during which if you were shot down you were a force of one. He is the POW with a father who was a Navy Admiral and when offered release from a NV pow camp because of his father's stature refused it. He stuck it out and underwent severe beatings that ruined his rotator cuff in his left arm. His broken leg was never treated properly so he went through seven yeas of captivity as a near cripple. He has always spoken truth to power, and I admire that even when disagreeing with his opinion. Today's world has little room for great men as factional powers compete. McCain is not nor will ever be a great man. However, for me he will always be a great warrior. For me that tops being a politician. God bless him in his fight.
