Vastavam web: John McCain is being laid to rest at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. The private burial Sunday next to Adm Chuck Larson brings to a close the six-term senator’s cross-country farewell after he died of brain cancer August 25 in Arizona.
The procession was carefully designed by McCain as a final call to arms to a nation he feared was at risk of losing its civility and sense of shared purpose. To illustrate the warning, McCain asked former Presidents Barack Obama and George W Bush to eulogize him at Washington National Cathedral. The service Saturday was a rebuke of President Donald Trump’s divisive politics.
