Obama, Jack McCain Embrace At US Naval Academy Graduation (SLIDESHOW, VIDEO)

President Obama promised members of the graduating class at the US Naval Academy Friday that they would never have to fight an unnecessary war. "I will only send you into harm's way when it is absolutely necessary, and with the strategy, the well-defined goals, the equipment and the support that you need to get the job done," said the Commander-in-Chief.

One member of the President's audience was Senator John McCain. McCain and his family were at the event to see their oldest son Jack graduate. Jack and Obama shared a moment on stage while Mrs. McCain cheered her son on after he received his diploma.
