Amnesty Juan McVain was a LOSER at the Naval Academy...they wanted to kick him out for excess demerits, but daddy the Admiral saved him. He was the son and grandson of admirals...that is why he got in and why he remained at Annapolis.
Then he crashed at least 3 planes in the military.
When he got back from Nam, he dumped his newly crippled wife (car accident) to marry younger $ to parlay his war record into personal political aggrandizement.
As a senator, he has been a useful idiot for the Left.
