This Memorial Day, AMC is celebrating the national holiday by airing a marathon of patriotic films and who better to host such an event than former prisoner of war and Republican presidential candidate John McCain?

According to the Hollywood Reporter, McCain will host AMC’s Memorial Day weekend marathon of movies that celebrate war heroes. Some of the films featured in the marathon are Midway, Patton, The Longest Day, Hamburger Hill, Tora! Tora! Tora!, and Battle of the Bulge.

McCain was held captive for more than five years in Hanoi when his plane was shot down during the Vietnam War. Given his history, I’d say AMC made a good call in getting McCain to join in their cinematic celebration of war heroes.
