Flashback: An American Hero Returns from Vietnam


As part of an interview for US News and World Report, Thomas J. O’Halloran photographed Lt. Comdr. John S. McCain on April 24, 1973. The photo was taken one month after McCain’s release from a five-year stay at the “Hanoi Hilton.” Note how little his intensity has changed in the thirtysome years since.
