  • Senator John McCain was buried on Sunday at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.
  • McCain trained there as a young man in the 1950s, and met his best friend Chuck Larson.
  • Larson later became a US Admiral, and chose burial plots at the academy with space for McCain, himself, and their wives.

Sen. John McCain was finally laid to rest on Sunday at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland a day after a ceremony in Washington, D.C., where thousands of prominent business, media, military, and political figures came to pay their respects. 

In contrast, Sunday’s ceremony at McCain’s alma mater was small and private. The late senator graduated from the elite naval academy in 1958, where he met his friend Chuck Larson, before serving in Vietnam as a fighter jet pilot.
