Meghan McCain shared a loving message for her late father John McCain for Veterans Day. Per Pop Culture, The View co-host posted an old photo of her dad to her Instagram account on November 11 as she praised the former military officer and all those who have served and continue to serve in the armed forces in the caption.
The old black-and-white picture, taken several years ago, showed a young John in his full military uniform while posing next to a plane.
Writing in the caption, McCain – who has shared many heartfelt and emotional tributes to her late dad on her social media account following his sad death in August following a battle with cancer – thanked her father and his fellow veterans, but didn’t confirm exactly when the snap was taken.
“Today on #VeteransDay we remember and honor those who have selflessly served and sacrificed. Those who have and continue to fight to protect our freedoms in this incredible country of ours. I am forever grateful,” she wrote.
McCain then continued in the very personal message for her dad on her Instagram page, “I miss you so much Dad, thank you for showing me what fighting for something greater than yourself means.”
She also added the U.S. flag emoji to her loving caption and added the hashtag “homeofthefreebecauseofthebrave.”

Fans left a number of comments on the upload many of which praised the former serviceman and presidential hopeful.
“What a brave and incredible man,” one Instagram user told Meghan, while another wrote, “Your father definitely fought for this country! God bless his soul.”
A third wrote in the comments section of McCain’s upload, “Your father was a good man.”
Meghan’s latest public tribute to her dad is one of many The View co-host has shared with her followers as she continues to mourn her late dad.
As the Inquisitr reported last month, the star shared a personal photo of herself and her dad on Instagram with a raw message as she commemorated 66 days since his death.
The picture showed the two posing together, while McCain listed some of the many things she misses about her dad in the caption, including reading the newspaper together and the way he used to like to sing songs by The Beach Boys.
“I miss you so much Dad it physically hurts my heart,” Meghan then added alongside the sweet family photo shared with her fans last month. “I miss your laugh, your voice, your dark sense of humor, the way you always made me feel safe in a world that seems to have lost its way.”
As reported by The New York Times, John passed away on August 25 at the age of 81 around a year after he was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor known as glioblastoma.
