History Study Notes, CV-59 USS Forrestal
the 1967 fire on board the USS Forrestal, which broke out during its service at Yankee Station off the coast of Vietnam. You'll read of (now senator) John McCain's narrow escape from death  and of the crew's struggle as it battled for days to extinguish the fire - a struggle that in the end cost the lives of 134 men

the 5-year imprisonment of John McCain as a POW during the Vietnam War, and the influence his navy admiral forebears - his grandfather commanded an aircraft carrier in World War II, and his father presided over naval forces in the Pacific during the Vietnam War - had on his life. From the Naval Academy through capture and imprisonment, this is an inspiring story of courage.
