McCain, 81, died just over a week ago, and his funeral, attended by three former presidents, was held on Saturday. The ceremony on Sunday was described as small and private; McCain's casket was brought to its final resting place, with a view of the Severn River, by a horse-drawn caisson, and the American flag over it was folded and given to Cindy McCain.

Sen. McCain graduated from the Naval Academy in 1958, and he wrote in his memoir that he wished to be buried next to Larson, who died in 2014, "near where it began." Jeva Lange
