In July 1967 John S. McCain III survived a deck explosion and fire onboard the USS Forrestal that killed 134. He then joined the USS Oriskany VA-163 “Saints” and in October 1967 his A-4E Skyhawk was shot down over Vietnam. Released after 5 1/2 years in prison, John retired from the military in 1981 and was elected as a Congressman in 1982 and as Senator in 1986. John McCain III was considered a national hero and a great statesman. When John died in 2018 he was given a state funeral usually reserved for U.S. Presidents and Supreme Court Justices.

The Douglas A-4 Skyhawk was a carrier capable light-attack bomber designed for the US Navy and Marine Corp. First flown in June 1954, the A-4s combat career began with carrier-launched raids over North Vietnam in 1964. The Navy began removing A-4's from its front-line squadrons in 1967, with the last one retired in 1975. The Marine Corps retired the Skyhawk in June 1994.
