Video Marks McCain's POW Anniversary
John McCain's campaign has produced a video marking the 35th anniversary of his March 15, 1973 release and return home from North Vietnam, where he was held as a prisoner of war for six years.
The video stars fellow POWs Orson Swindle, and Paul Galanti, and McCain's mother, Roberta McCain.
Fearing her son had been killed after his plane was shot, Roberta says learning he had instead been taken as a POW was "the best news I ever heard in my whole life."
At the end of the video, John McCain says: "The only reason why I'm here today is because I believe a higher being has a mission for me in my life."
