McCain's final resting place: Naval Academy cemetery next to friend

McCain's final resting place: Naval Academy cemetery next to friend

John McCain's service at the Washington National Cathedral, but his daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, arrived Saturday to attend the service. "Some people will never recover from that".

On Saturday (September 1), McCain was eulogized by his daughter, Meghan McCain, Former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, Former Senator Joseph Lieberman, and former Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger at an invitation-only ceremony at the Washington National Cathedral.

Biden, who long served alongside McCain as a senator, said they both lamented the ever-increasing mistrust in the modern Senate. "He called on us to be better than that".

The Wisconsin Republican looked to the future, envisioning some day bringing children and grandchildren to the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, to visit McCain's grave.

Former presidents Bush and Obama - both of whom beat McCain in presidential elections - were asked to give eulogies at his funeral.

Cloaked in a shirt and bandanna covered in red and white stripes and stars adorning a blue background, veteran Lewis A. Bracy, 65, camped out as early as 10:30 a.m. with a sign that read "John U R All, Trump is Not".

McCain had the last laugh, though, taking a few parting shots at the current president of the U.S. in a final letter to America which was read out after he lost his battle with brain cancer last week.

Sunday's memorial service and burial were private, in contrast to a series of public commemorations last week.

John McCain's final journey from his Arizona ranch is ending on a grassy hill at the U.S. Naval Academy within view of the Severn River and earshot of midshipmen present and future, and alongside a lifelong friend.

The Vietnam P.O.W. turned maverick politician died August 25 at 81 after a battle with brain cancer.

"The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great", she also said.

The late senator, a fervent critic of the president, had requested that Trump not be invited to his funeral.

Mr Trump, who has feuded publicly with McCain and mocked his military service, received five deferments that got him out of serving in the military. He later added, "My father fought and suffered, endured defeats, rose from the ground and fought again to keep faith with his heroes, to safeguard the country he loved and her causes, to be a better man, and to make a better world". McCain was a member of the Academy's Class of 1958. The public may be exhausted of this war called the war on terrorism, but John McCain never was.

At the time of Larson's death, McCain said in a statement he could think of "no finer example of honorable" and faithful service to the country than that of Larson's. "Perhaps above all, John detested the abuse of power".

McCain died a week ago at age 81 after a yearlong battle with brain cancer.
