Brave and honorable former POWs

I remember debating with high school friends how difficult it is to withstand years of torture. Do read about this remarkable friend of John McCain and his testimony.

Five-and-a-half years in a North Vietnamese prison isn't what would make Sen. John McCain a great president - it's what he did during those years that shows a former fellow prisoner what kind of president he will be.

Col. Thomas N. Moe stopped in Gettysburg Thursday afternoon for a brief meet-and-greet on behalf of the man he said will be the next president of the United States.
Moe, a retired fighter pilot, spent five-and-a-half years in the cell next to McCain while the two were prisoners of war in Hanoi, North Vietnam.
