On the Passing of Senator McCain

By Congressman Chris Smith

Senator John McCain was an extraordinarily brave and noble man—a hero—a dedicated husband, father, fighter pilot, and an amazing lawmaker.  He endured and overcame unspeakable horrors as a POW,  and as a lawmaker never ceased working for members of our armed forces and veterans.   And on matters of principle and conviction, Senator McCain was fiercely independent, always willing—even eager—to bend into the wind and not with it.

My wife Marie and I will always cherish and deeply respect the incomparable Senator John McCain.  Our prayers go out to his Cindy and his entire family.
