America’s independence is celebrated every Fourth of July. Through the decades, patriots have suffered and died for American values. Thankfully, some heroes survived great danger and continued to lead our county.

John McCain was such a leader. He earned the legacy of a patriotic hero. His character and values shone brightly when he suffered torture in the “Hanoi Hilton.” His strong faith helped him serve our nation until his death.

Celebrate this Fourth by reading his book, “Faith of My Fathers.” Reflect on your values and on the faith of great women and men who sacrificed with grace and dignity to make our nation a leader of the free world.

A con man/politician, who used his privilege to stay home during wartime, is unworthy to hug or even touch the flag. Such a weak and openly dishonest liar will never ever erase the good name and courage of McCain.

Excellent letter. Trump dodged military service and likes Putin. His record is dismal compared to McCain. His neoNazi racism is obvious.
