A Tribute to Senator John McCain

August 27, 2018

The United States of America-China Chamber of Commerce (“USCCC”) and its sister organization, The United States of America-Vietnam Chamber of Commerce (“USVCC”) are greatly saddened by the passing of U.S. Senator John McCain.

Senator McCain was a true American hero who served his country with dignity and honor in both his distinguished military and political careers. Despite being made a POW during the U.S.-Vietnam war, Senator McCain became a dear friend of the Vietnamese people and did much to help Vietnam and the United States to harmonize political and trade relations.

“Senator McCain was a classy man,” said Siva Yam, president of the U.S.-Vietnam Chamber of Commerce, “and he worked tirelessly to help build new bridges and heal the wounds of war between the two countries”

Our thoughts and prayers are with the McCain family during this most difficult time.
