Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA
Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
Onto Vietnam War hero & MMXVIII Presidential Candidate for the Republicans, Senator John McCain. John represents The Aztec State quite well & was an honourable naval officer like his father & grandfather before him & is my personal favourite Senator next to Senator Bob Dole, Republican-Kansas (Retired, another war hero & the MCMXCVI Republican Presidential Candidate.) He also was a prisoner-of-war & still has injuries from that time. A respectable gentleman & legislator as well, the Senator talks up the value of military service but at the same time, the absolute stupidity of war (just as many of my blog entries on American Presidents who hated it but served themselves.)
An Editor's Note: As a prisoner in Vietnam, John has experienced the forces of good & evil (aka as the "light" & "dark" sides of the force) with the horrid torture he experienced while in captivity! So IV people II understand John's emotions, I highly recommend they go see "Star Wars (TM) Episode VII: The Force Awakens (TM.)" Seeing this film will give folks a template about what the true horror of war is!
"War is wretched beyond description, & only a fool or a fraud could sentimentalize its cruel reality."
