The World Food Prize Foundation extends its condolences to the family of Senator John McCain on his passing.

A statement from Foundation president, Ambassador Kenneth M. Quinn - “As a State Department official in the 1990s, I had the incomparable privilege of returning to Vietnam with Senator John McCain as we sought to obtain the fullest possible accounting for those military service members whose fates had not been resolved or whose bodies had not been recovered. It was there that I witnessed what I considered to be perhaps his greatest virtue as McCain fulfilled the bond that had united us in combat, that we would never leave fallen comrades behind. He was a true American hero, and a personal hero to me.”
