TO: JOHN Sidney McCain III better known as Senator McCain and currently the Republican Presidential candidate to succeed George Walker Bush.

As descendants of Scottish ancestors we both have something in common, you by way of JOSEPH McCAIN born in Scotland, 1773, and me by way of WILLIAM WALLACE born in Scotland, 1852. We have some common inherited values that go a long way back.

 

Foremost among these is the singular issue of the understanding of freedom and independence from the monarchal rule of Kings won in the pitched battles between the Highlanders and the Kings troops best put to rest on the field at Bannockburn.

 

How much of that value system is present in your current mindset after centuries of Scottish struggle for the freedoms won by such historical characters as William Wallace and Robert the Bruce, not to mention your father and Grandfather (also Scots) as Admirals of the US Navy whose duties were involved in the struggles of WWI and WWII for they surely believed they were fighting to preserve freedom and democracy!

In my case, a father that served in the Federalized Utah Guard in the Border dispute with Mexico 1916 and later as a kilted member of the London Scottish Regiment manning a machine gun in the trenches of France in WWI.

 

I was not called upon to serve in the violence of WWII as too young, or the later Korean War because I had a deferment as a minister. Still later, I was deferred from the Vietnam conflict in which you served and suffered capture and torture at the hands of the North Vietnamese.
