McCain’s son, Jimmy. He’s an active duty Marine. McCain won’t mention it. But I will.

Time article: 

This September, Senator John McCain‘s youngest son, Jimmy, 18, will report to a U.S. Marine Corps depot near Camp Pendleton in San Diego. After three months of boot camp and a month of specialized training, he will be ready to deploy. Depending on the unit he joins, he could be in Iraq as early as this time next year, and his chances of seeing combat at some point are high. Of the 178,000 active-duty Marines in the world, some 80,000 have seen a tour in Iraq or Afghanistan, and 25,000 are now bearing the brunt of some of the worst fighting in Iraq. About 6,000 Marines have been wounded there, and about 650 have been killed. “I’m obviously very proud of my son,” says the elder McCain, “but also understandably a little nervous.”
