John Sidney McCain III was born on August 29, 1936, at Coco Solo Naval Air Station, Panama Canal Zone, as the second of three kids, to naval officer John S. McCain Jr. and Roberta (Wright) McCain.
Both his father and paternal grandfather were four-star US navy admirals and came from a family of Scotch-Irish and English lineage.
After shifting between various navy bases in the US and abroad, his family settled in Arizona in 1951, where he went to a private preparatory boarding school, Episcopal High School, Alexandria, Virginia, graduating in 1954.
In order to continue the family tradition, he attended United States Naval Academy, Annapolis, and passed out in 1958
John McCain started his military career with a two-and-half years training at Pensacola, thus becoming a naval aviator of ground-attack aircraft in 1960, and began flying USS Intrepid and USS Enterprise in the Caribbean and Mediterranean Seas.
During the Vietnam War in July 1967, John McCain volunteered to fly A-4 Skyhawk in the bombing campaign, Operation Rolling Thunder, where his plane went down in a bomb explosion, but McCain escaped with injuries on legs and chest.
In October 1967 while on his 23rd bombing mission, his A-4E Skyhawk was attacked over the North Vietnamese capital, Hanoi, where he broke both arms and one leg and was held captive in Hoa Lo Prison or ‘Hanoi Hilton’.
He received medical treatment only after North Vietnamese discovered that his father was a high-ranking admiral.
He rejected various offers of early release, not willing to violate military code of conduct and being used as a powerful piece of propaganda.
After spending five and a half years in different prison camps, including two years in solitary confinement, with continuous physical torture and maltreatment, he was released in March 1973 as a Prisoner of War (POW).
He underwent rehabilitation and physical therapy for months to get his injuries treated and resumed his flying duty in late 1974. However, his poor physical health deterred his ability to advance further in the Navy.
Visualizing his better prospects in politics after being assigned as the Navy’s liaison to the US Senate in 1977, he retired from the Navy in 1981 on the rank of a captain.
He moved to Arizona to his second wife, Cindy’s residence and started working in her father’s company, Hensley & Co, handling public relations and establishing political connections.
He was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1982 and 1984. Being an ardent supporter of the Reagan administration, he was included in the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
He was elected as the US Senate from Arizona in 1986, defeating longtime Arizona Republican Barry Goldwater, and was, thereafter re-elected in 1992, 1998, 2004, and 2010.
He served as a member of the Armed Services Committee, Commerce Committee, and Indian Affairs Committee, but rose to national prominence through his 1988 Republican National Convention speech.
In 1987, John McCain got involved in a scandal as a ‘Keating Five’ member for having connections with savings and loan swindler Charles Keating, Jr. Although he was cleared of the charges in 1991, he was criticized for showing ‘poor judgment’.
He served as the Chairman of the International Republican Institute, from January 1993 till his death in 2018.
Despite differing thoughts on several issues, like illegal immigration, pork-barrel spending, global warming, torture, and a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage, he supported Bush for 2004 presidential re-elections.
He has been a supporter of the 2007 surge of Iraq troops and stressed upon wining the 2001Afghanistan War.
In 2015, he became the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Armed Services
