Alexandria, Va. – Today, National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA) President and CEO Craig Purser issued the following statement on the passing of Senator John McCain.
“Senator John McCain is an American hero who served his country selflessly for more than six decades. He was a rebel, a patriot and a statesman who dedicated his entire life to the service of others. He was also a member of the beer distribution family. With his passing, America lost a principled and passionate leader who put his country first. On behalf of the beer distribution industry, we offer our prayers to the McCain family and everyone at Hensley Beverage Company. He was truly one of a kind and America needs more leaders like John McCain.”
