I would like to provide a personal experience concerning John Mc Cain's and his selfless dedication.

I was stationed on the U.S.S. Forrestal and during our deployment off the coast of Vietnam,a fire on the flight deck occured.The fire was caused by the bombs cross decked to us by a departing carier group which were old and unstable.

John was attached to the airgroup that was departing and voluntered to be detached to our airgroup extending his tour as a A6A Intruder fighter pilot.

About 85 navy personnel were killed during the fire
and 50 more died of wounds sustained fighting the fire or were trapt aboard the Forrestal.

I remember seeing John Mc Cain whith blood stains all over his flight suit being lifted off in a litter and brought up to the area that wounded and dead that had been designated as seriously wounded.I also remember him assisting in the efforts to assist those more seriously injured.

Later that afternoon John was transfered to another carrier assigned to our battle group.That same day he was launched in a A6A-Intruder to provide close air to ground support for our troops in Vietnam.

I don't know if the wounds he sustained that day limited his prowesness, but I can testify that John Mc Cain is one hell of a attack fighter pilot and American, despite the garbage that Airforce former general spouted about John.

Barach's comment that the generals coments were not artfull dosen't make it for anyone who knows John Mc Cain.
