https://apolloinrealtime.org/13/?t=145:25:30 At the reception in Honolulu, Admiral McCain greets the crew. McCain was Commanding the US Pacific fleet at the time, and the commentary makes note that his son is currently being held prisoner by the North Vietnamese. The son is of course John McCain, later to become a Republican senator, who remained in captivity till 1973.
