McCain to host AMC's weekend of war heroes films

NEW YORK (AP) - John McCain will be the host of AMC cable network's Memorial Day weekend marathon of movies celebrating war
heroes.

The former prisoner of war and Republican presidential candidate
will introduce movies like "Midway," "Patton," "The Longest Day," "Hamburger Hill," "Tora! Tora! Tora!" and "Battle of the Bulge."

McCain says the most interesting thing he's found about heroes is that "they're the last people to believe that they're really heroes."

The Arizona senator was held captive in Hanoi for more than five years after his plane was shot down during the Vietnam War.
