Above is a photo taken shortly after Cleland went to the U.S. Senate in 1997, of Vietnam veterans in the chamber. McCain was the only one left.
In the photo, Cleland is at the center, obviously. Behind him, left to right: Bob Kerrey, D-Neb.; Chuck Hagel, R-Neb.; John Kerry, D-Mass.; Chuck Robb, D-Va.; and McCain.
