McCain served in the Navy during the Vietnam War, where he was a prisoner of war of the North Vietnamese for six years until 1973. The injuries that happened during this ordeal left him with many permanent physical limitations. He is known throughout the United States as a hero, which helped him win the 2008 presidential election against Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden.
