Summary:

The U.S. Navy released John McCain’s military records, consisting of mostly medals he was awarded during his Navy career. Several citations mention his achievements either as a prisoner or as a lieutenant commander flying bombing runs. Some are signed by then-Secretary of the Navy John Warner, later a colleague of McCain's in the Senate. The Associated Press filed for the Freedom of Information Act request.

Notes:

The Navy recently released McCain's military record -- most of it citations for medals during his Navy career -- after a Freedom of Information Act request by The Associated Press.
