United States Naval AcademyThe Naval Academy was honored to host the private funeral services for Senator John McCain today at the Chapel and Cemetery. Photos of the events are available (and download-able) here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/unitedstatesnavalacademy/albums/72157673001474208
Approximately 500 midshipmen attended the service in the Chapel, not including the Glee Club(who attended and performed during the service). Those midshipmen were joined by an additional 500 midshipmen to line the procession route from the Chapel to the Cemetery.
Not pictured are those of you who spent your day in the heat to pay one last tribute to the family outside of our gates. We appreciate your respectful and lasting tribute to the family as Senator McCain entered the Academy one last time. Thank you for continued support and understanding.
