John McCain was buried Sunday afternoon at a cemetery at the U.S. Naval Academy the finale to a week-long memorial honoring the American war hero, senator and presidential candidate. McCain will rest next to his best friend, Navy Adm. Charles “Chuck” Larson, in a plot close to those of military leaders and war heroes. Before his death, McCain wrote in his memoir that this was where he wanted to be buried. “I want to watch the hawks hunt from the sycamore, and then take my leave bound for a place near my old friend Chuck Larson, in the cemetery on the Severn, back where it began,” McCain wrote. When he was laid to rest, military jets flew over the cemetery in “missing man” formation. McCain died of brain cancer last Saturday. He was 81 years old.
