Earlier this week, the McCain campaign announced their Veterans Coalition in Virginia. We have 31 regional coordinators across the Commonwealth, assisted by deputies to implement an aggressive grassroots effort in Virginia.
In press conferences in Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads, former Prisoners of War Everett Alvarez (Vietnam), Paul Galanti (Vietnam), Ron Young (Iraq) and other leaders like Admiral Hank Giffin spoke about John McCain’s service, sacrifice and commitment to veterans.
A particularly moving portion of the Arlington press conference was when Joe McCain (a fellow Vietnam veteran) talked about his brother’s flight jacket.
