Saturday marks the 35th anniversary of the day John McCain was released from the infamous "Hanoi Hilton," a North Vietnamese prison. After his plane was shot down, McCain spent five and a half years as a prisoner of war there.

The presumptive Republican nominee's campaign has released a video commemorating the date. The video features interviews with some of McCain's fellow POWs, as well as an appearance by McCain's mother, Roberta. You can watch it below.
