John McCain’s POW Story About The Pledge Of Allegiance–Truth!
Summary of eRumor:
A moving story from Senator John McCain, who was a POW in Vietnam. It’s about a fellow prisoner named Mike Christian who fashioned an American flag out of bits and pieces of clothing. The POW’s would say the Pledge of Allegiance on a regular basis. One day, the flag was discovered and Mike Christian was beaten by his captors. McCain says that Mike immediately began the task of making another flag…a story to remember when saying the Pledge of Allegiance.
The story is true and taken from a speech that John McCain gave before the 1988 Republican National Convention.
