FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
America has lost a legendary public servant in Sen. John S. McCain. Sen. McCain’s record of serving our nation extends through a 60-year commitment to serving the United States of America. His very well known story of service in Vietnam and being a prisoner of war for 5-years is remarkable. His subsequent public service in the US House of Representatives and US Senate is legendary. Sen. McCain was known as a friend and supporter of our military and veterans.
As National Commander of the Combat Infantrymen’s Association, I speak for all infantrymen when I say we extend our heart felt condolences to his wife, Cindy, and his family today. His presence and independent leadership will be deeply missed in our Congress.
America’s combat infantrymen, both past and present, acknowledge the sacrifices and hardships that come with service to our nation in times of conflict. John McCain endured many sacrifices and hardships while serving our nation and we will always hold those deeds in the highest esteem. May God bless John S. McCain.
