Walking with McCain
September 5, 2018
Several years ago, in Phoenix, John McCain was part of a Veteran's group walking in a Memorial Day parade. When they paused in front of me, I extended my arm hoping he would shake my hand. He did, and held it firmly while inquiring if I was a veteran.
"Yes", I said, "but I have never served in combat."
He replied, "you've served your country well, please walk with us".
I've never forgotten those thoughtful words and the man who spoke them.
