The Jewish War Veterans of the USA is deeply saddened by the passing of U.S. Senator John S. McCain III.  Senator McCain, the Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, was a strong supporter of our nation’s military personnel and of our veterans. National Commander Dr. Barry S. Schneider said, “Senator McCain will be sorely missed by the military and veterans community!  He will always be remembered as a hero of our country.”  Following five and a half years as a POW in North Vietnam, Senator McCain served as a two-term U.S. congressman and six-term U.S. senator from Arizona.
