I have spent some time trying to understand Trump’s comments about John McCain. Is John McCain a hero? Is he a hero because he was captured? True there are a lot of definitions of hero and certainly with regards to McCain there are some who would say that he is and others who say no. But there should be no debate or doubt that McCain served honorably.
In contrast to Trump’s comments, I like people who served…whether they were captured or not, whether they served in peacetime or war, in for three years or thirty, forward deployed or based in the US.
The link is John McCain’s first person account of the mission and his first few days of capture. Even if you are familiar with his story, Trump’s recent remark makes it worth the time to visit again. http://www.usnews.com/McCains POW Account
