Chuck Larson, who died of leukemia in 2014.
A private memorial service at the academy's chapel was followed by a procession to the burial site.
To recall the observation of my U.S. veteran friend, will the memorial at the National Cathedral remain a "brief moment of brotherhood among those swimming in the Trump swamp"?
McCain died a week ago at age 81 after a yearlong battle with brain cancer.
There were many distinctive and unusual elements at the funeral service and the passing away of the Republican Senator from Arizona (August 25) and the steady build-up to the memorial service was described as a "phenomenon" by a discerning United States military veteran. Joe Lieberman, who joined the program with Graham, said he was a "proud uncle" watching McCain's speech at the memorial service. It's all about trust. "I will miss him", Senator Jeff Flake tweeted Sunday along with a photo of him and McCain, in which the former pilot wore a Navy hat. He works for the Washington, D.C., law and lobbying firm Covington and Burling, LLP. Every single day that Jon Kyl represents #Arizona in the U.S. Senate is a day our state is well-served.
Of course, there were fulsome tributes to Senator McCain's bravery and courage and public service, stark reminders of the torture he endured as a prisoner of war, and of the policies he fought for (and against) in his many decades as a Republican politician from Arizona. She did it the way her father would want her to do it, she was direct, the way John was'.
Arizona's other Senate seat is up for election this year, with Sen. "So I just said, 'That's fine, good, ' and he said, 'By the way, John is going to be next to me'". "In one epic life was written the courage and greatness of our country". Why do we remember this man? "Or that when all was said and done, we were on the same team".
Senator John McCain of Arizona was buried Sunday at his college alma mater, the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, after five days of remembrances of him as a war hero, senior statesman to the world and American patriot.
McCain's daughter, Meghan McCain, also delivered a heartfelt eulogy.
"Well, I don't really have a relationship with President Trump", Kyl said, adding: "I believe in Judge Kavanaugh".
McCain's comments call back to Trump's campaign slogan, "make America great again".
