In the midst of his battle with brain cancer, Arizona Senator John McCain has plans to return to his alma mater to deliver a speech.
The academy made the announcement on Tuesday, October 24, and said the senator, who served as a pilot in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War, will speak Monday evening.
Despite his grim prognosis, McCain continues to be committed to his political and civic duties. The six-term Republican continued his clash with President Donald Trump when he criticzed the Vietnam-era draft system for forcing low-income Americans to serve while the wealthy were excused with a doctor’s note.
