Much has been sacrificed

for your right to vote

John McCain for President.

Courageous Service. Experienced Leadership. Bold Solutions.

Much has been sacrificed

for your right to vote.

Please Vote John McCain on January 8th

Like me, Mike Christian was shot down and captured in Vietnam in 1967. As his cellmate,

I watched as Mike began to collect little scraps of red, white, and blue cloth, and with a

needle fashioned from a splinter of bamboo, he sewed an American flag on the inside of

his blue prison shirt. Every afternoon, my fellow POWs and I would recite the Pledge of

Allegiance to Mike’s flag. No other event of the day held as much meaning for us.

The prison guards soon discovered Mike’s flag — an offense for which he was beaten

severely. Mike was returned to our cell and we helped him to the bare mattress in the room.

After a few moments, with Mike still bloodied, broken and eyes nearly swollen shut, we

watched in awe as he gathered his scraps of cloth and started sewing another American flag.

We must never forget those Americans who, with their courage, with

their sacrifice, and with their lives, have protected our right to vote.

On January 8th, Please Vote John McCain For President
