John McCain road on his

John McCain rode on his father coat tales through the Academy, was directly involved in the fire aboard Forestal (Wet starting his plane in violation of establish safety rules), crashed at least 1 plane in training, failed to complete a mission and was shot down and captured.

His behavior during captivity is extremely commendable as he refused early release (which was offered because he was the son of a high ranking Navy officer) until all were released.

I have some respect for him for this action, but I see junior Marines every day contributing more than John McCain.
