John McCain to Posthumously Receive Father of the Year Award

The National Father’s Day Council will honor the late Sen. John McCain at its annual awards next month.
McCain, who died of brain cancer in August 2018, will receive a Father of the Year award on June 13 at noon at the group’s luncheon at the New York Hilton Midtown Hotel. Also to be honored at the event will be Tom Kingsbury, president, chief executive officer and chairman of Burlington Stores Inc.
The son and grandson of Navy Admirals, McCain served as a naval aviator for 22 years following his 1958 graduation from the Naval Academy. While on his 23rd mission over North Vietnam, his plane was struck by a missile, forcing him to eject, which resulted in him breaking both arms and one leg. McCain then spent years as a prisoner of war in Hanoi, where he was subjected to torture and denied medical treatment.
Following his release, McCain served as a naval liaison to the Senate. He retired from the Navy in 1981 with naval honors including the Silver Star, Bronze Star, Legion of Merit, Purple Heart and Distinguished Flying Cross. He was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives from Arizona in 1982 and the U.S. Senate in 1986. During his time

The Strange Reason John McCain Refused to Take Direct Flights From Phoenix to D.C. for 30 Years

When federal restrictions prevented airlines from flying directly between Washington, D.C. and any city more than 1,250 miles away, Sen. John McCain took a stand on behalf of his adoptive hometown of Phoenix.

The federal perimeter rule required that all flights to and from Reagan National Airport must be shorter than 1,250 miles, and in 1999, the six-term senator led an effort to repeal it, hoping this would improve business for Phoenix-based airline America West and benefit Arizona in general, according to Travel + Leisure. The flight between Phoenix and Washington, D.C. is 1,979 miles.

The Vietnam vet’s bill failed, but it did encourage Congress to start making “beyond-perimeter exemptions.” Starting in 2000, America West began service from Reagan National Airport to Phoenix, USA Today reports, but McCain never boarded the flight.

Some opponents of the senator suggested McCain’s efforts to eliminate the rule were to shorten his commute, not to benefit the people of Arizona, something he felt he couldn’t stand for.

“To John, that was such an abhorrent thing to be accused of, he just took it off the table and said, ‘OK, I won’t fly it,”’ American Airlines CEO Doug Parker, then the CEO of America West, told USA Today. “I don’t think any other member would make that statement.”

McCain’s stubbornness once got in the way of his professional commitments, Parker shared. The late senator was flying to an event where he was slated to introduce then-President George W. Bush, but his connecting flight was canceled.

The man who would stand in for him, another Arizona Republican, had taken the direct flight.

“He wouldn’t take the nonstop even to get to an event on time,” Parker said.

Sen. Jeff Flake, also a Republic from Arizona, backed up Parker’s story about McCain’s commitment, as well. Flake began his career in Washington, D.C, in 2001, it wasn’t until “years and years” later that McCain finally took the direct flight.

Flake remembers that when he decided to make the switch, he said, “I’ve done my penance, I guess.”

Parker said that one of the first times Sen. McCain used the direct flight was to arrive home in time to see one of his seven children graduate. When there wasn’t any controversy afterward, Parker recalled McCain thought, “OK, no one seems to care. I think the statute of limitations has run out.”

Sen. McCain died on Saturday at age 81, one day after his family announced that he would be stopping treatment for his stage-four brain cancer. He was diagnosed in July 2017.

“Last summer, Senator John McCain shared with Americans the news our family already knew: he had been diagnosed with an aggressive glioblastoma, and the prognosis was serious,” the family’s statement said. “In the year since, John has surpassed expectations for his survival. But the progress of disease and the inexorable advance of age render their verdict. With his usual strength of will, he has now chosen to discontinue medical treatment.”

Sarah Palin Pays Tribute to ‘Friend’ John McCain: ‘I Will Remember the Good Times’

Sarah Palin is remembering Sen. John McCain after her former running mate died of brain cancer at the age of 81 on Saturday.

Sen. McCain and Palin, once the governor of Alaska, ran as a ticket in the 2008 presidential election.

Palin, 54, wrote on Twitter Saturday, “Today we lost an American original. Sen. John McCain was a maverick and a fighter, never afraid to stand for his beliefs. John never took the easy path in life — and through sacrifice and suffering he inspired others to serve something greater than self.”

She continued, “John McCain was my friend. I will remember the good times. My family and I send prayers for Cindy and the McCain family.”

She also wrote on Instagram, “Heartfelt condolences. God, please provide peace to Sen. McCain’s family at this time. To all who honor him and his service: we share sorrowful feelings tonight, but remain thankful for Sen. McCain and all our vets and active service members who serve something greater than self. God bless the McCains.”

Palin previously spoke out on Friday when McCain’s family announced his decision to discontinue treatment for his stage-four cancer.

“Prayers for Sen. McCain and his family at this most trying time,” she wrote on Instagram. “May comfort and peace envelop them. May my friend sense appreciation for his inspiration to serve something greater than self.”

In recent months, Sen. McCain expressed regret about selecting Palin as his vice presidential candidate in his book, The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and other Appreciations, and in an HBO documentary.

He said that not choosing his friend and former Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) as his running mate was “another mistake that I made” during the election, which President Barack Obama won, though he offered praise for Palin’s work on the campaign.

Palin told The Daily Mail in May, “That’s not what Sen. McCain has told me all these years.”

She added, “I attribute a lot of what we’re hearing and reading regarding McCain’s statements to his ghostwriter or ghostwriters.”

Tributes for Sen. McCain, the former POW and longtime Republic politician, also came from McCain’s family members.

His wife Cindy McCain, 64, wrote, “My heart is broken. I am so lucky to have lived the adventure of loving this incredible man for 38 years. He passed the way he lived, on his own terms, surrounded by the people he loved, in the place he loved best.”

His daughter Meghan McCain, 33, said, “In the thirty-three years we shared together, he raised me, taught me, corrected me, comforted me, encouraged me, and supported me in all things,” she wrote in part. “He taught me how to live. His love and his care, ever present, always unfailing, took me from a girl to a woman — and he showed me what it is to be a man.”

Funeral arrangements for Sen. McCain are underway.

John McCain Goes on Hike with Daughter Meghan Just 3 Days After Brain Cancer Diagnosis

John McCain is not letting his brain cancer diagnosis prevent him from enjoying time with his daughter.

On Saturday, the 80-year-old politician went on a hike with his daughter Meghan McCain and their dog. “Amazing hike with Dad @SenJohnMcCain this morning,” Meghan, 32, wrote on Twitter. “Thank you all for your best wishes!”

Her message came attached to a photo of the two sitting on a bench overlooking the stunning terrain in Arizona, where John is recovering from a minimally invasive craniotomy he received at Phoenix’s Mayo Clinic on July 14 to remove a 5-cm blood clot associated with the cancer from above his left eye.

It was during that surgery when doctors first discovered the cancerous brain tumor associated with a blood clot.

The cancer, known as glioblastoma, is one of the most aggressive and highly invasive forms of cancer — and makes up about half of all malignant (cancerous) brain tumors, affecting around five people out of 100,000 per year. United States Senator Edward “Ted” Kennedy, Delaware attorney general (and son of former Vice President Joe Biden) Beau Biden also had glioblastoma.

The median survival rate is about 14 to 14.5 months (up from eight to 12 months in recent years), and with current treatment about 5% of patients make it to a survival rate of five years or more, TIME reported. Treatments include surgical resection (i.e. having as much of the brain tumor removed as possible via a roughly half-day surgical procedure), chemotherapy, and radiotherapy.

The former Republican presidential nominee said in a statement that the senator and his family are reviewing further treatment options with his Mayo Clinic care team and that his “treatment options may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation.”

John, who has served Arizona in Congress since 1982, is a three-time survivor of melanoma, an aggressive skin cancer that can spread to the brain and cause bleeding. He was diagnosed with invasive melanoma in 2000, and has been regularly screened by his doctors.

Meghan remains glued to her father’s side since his health crisis, explaining on Twitter Wednesday that she, her mother Cindy, and her siblings (Douglas, 57, Andrew, 55, Sidney, 50, John Sidney, 31, James, 29, and Bridget, 25) have “endured the shock of the news,” and are now living “with the anxiety about what comes next.”

“It won’t surprise you to learn that in all this, the one of us who is most confident and calm is my father,” she wrote. “He is the toughest person I know. The cruelest enemy could not break him. The aggressions of political life could not bend him. So he is meeting this challenge as he has every other.”

“Cancer may afflict him in many ways: But it will not make him surrender. Nothing ever has,” she added.

She ended her emotional explaining that her love for her father will never go away.

“My love for my father is boundless, and like any daughter I cannot and do not wish to be in a world without him,” she wrote. “I have faith that those days remain far away. Yet even in this moment, my fears for him are overwhelmed by one thing above all: Gratitude for our years together, and the years still to come. He is a warrior at dusk, one of the greatest Americans of our age, and the worth heir to his father’s and grandfather’s name. But to me he is something more.”

“He is my strength, my example, my refuge, my confidante, my teacher, my rock, my hero — my dad,” Meghan concluded.
