When John McCain was 31

Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

You may know that John McCain is the oldest candidate to run for the presidency. He’s 72 ! He is also a Vietnam War Veteran.  In October 1967, while on a bombing mission over Hanoi, he was shot down, badly injured, and captured by North Vietnamese soldiers. He was a POW (Prisoner of War) until 1973 (so for SIX years !)  , experiencing episodes of torture. His war wounds left him with lifelong physical limitations : that’s why you may have noticed that he has a slight limp (= il boite).

I suggest this video from an old News TV show called by Panorama.
