John McCain

It is not surprising that John, who grew up in such a family, chose a military career for himself. “From a very early age, I remember people saying, ‘He’s going to go to the Naval Academy like his father and grandfather,'” McCain recalled. “It was just something that had to happen. And maybe that’s why I practiced this rebellion against the system, always walking on the edge.”

Of course, as a result, like his father and grandfather, McCain entered the US Naval Academy in Annapolis. Like them, during his time at the academy, he was not among the best students (to put it mildly: John was eight hundred and ninety-fourth best student out of eight hundred and ninety-nine cadets), and not at all due to a lack of intelligence or low intelligence, and due to the frequent unwillingness to follow the rules and, as a result, conflicts with management. In 1958, McCain graduated from the academy and continued his studies in Florida in the course of military pilots. In 1960 he became a naval pilot and flew the Douglas A-1 Skyraider., which were based on aircraft carriers in the Caribbean, and later in the Mediterranean. At first, he was a very mediocre pilot and deservedly considered a reckless “reckless driver”. Three times the planes piloted by the young McCain got into an accident, including once during a flight in Spain he managed to catch power lines (he later recalled this incident as a “risk clowning”). Nevertheless, over time, he became a good pilot, “undisciplined, but fearless” according to colleagues.

In July 1965, McCain married Carol Shepp (they had known each other since John’s time at Annapolis) and adopted her two children. A year later, their daughter Sydney was born.

In 1966, John McCain asked to be given the opportunity to take part in the hostilities (the United States was then fighting in Vietnam). McCain was retrained for attack aircraft Douglas A-4 Skyhawk and in May 1967 was assigned to the aircraft carrier “Forrestal” (USS Forrestal). In July, the Forrestal arrived in the Gulf of Tonkin off the Vietnamese coast and its pilots took an active part in the bombing of North Vietnam, known as Operation Rolling Thunder.). There was no need to worry too much about following the rules, and McCain quickly earned a reputation as a bold pilot. At the same time, McCain (like many of his colleagues) believed that the operation was poorly organized. He said that “…most of our pilots…considered that our targets were practically useless. Our civilian commanders were complete idiots who had no idea what it takes to win a war…”

On July 29, 1967, there was an accident on the Forrestal in which McCain almost died. Due to a tragic accident, during the preparation for the flights, a missile spontaneously launched from one of the aircraft that were on the flight deck. The rocket hit the fuel tank of a neighboring aircraft, a huge fire started, two bombs exploded because of the fire. McCain, who was on his plane waiting to take off at the time of the explosion, later recalled: “I thought my plane had exploded. There were flames everywhere.” He was able to jump out of the cab, his clothes caught fire, but he was able to put them out. McCain tried to help another pilot, but at that moment the bombs exploded and he was thrown several meters away, while receiving minor injuries. One hundred and thirty-four people died on the Forrestal that day, McCain later said in an interview with The New York Times: “It’s hard to talk about it, but now that I’ve seen what bombs and napalm did to the people on our ship, I’m not sure I want to drop them on people in the Northern Vietnam”. However, when the Forrestal, damaged by fire and explosions, went for repairs, McCain continued to participate in combat missions, joining the Oriskany based on the aircraft carrier (USS Oriskany) squadron of A-4 Skyhawk attack aircraft, nicknamed “Saints” (Saints).
