Senator John McCain, who recently passed away, shared a bond with Louis Zamperini: they both were Prisoners of War. In the early 2000s, the senator took a minute to salute Louie.

Be sure to see the REST of Louis Zamperini’s true story when UNBROKEN: PATH TO REDEMPTION opens this Friday in theaters everywhere!
