Lieutenant Commander John McCain, was forcibly dragged from the wreckage of his A-4E Seahawk after being shot down over Hanoi. Saved from drowning by Viet Cong, he was severely beaten before being taken to the infamous Hanoi Hilton as a POW. He’d remain in the North Vietnamese’s hospitality for the next 7 years. POW - And a Hero!
