PHOENIX (ABC News) – Mourners gathered in Phoenix for a memorial service for war hero and longtime Senator John McCain.
The longtime Arizona senator’s wife and children followed out the casket following a memorial service Thursday where former Vice President Joe Biden, Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and others told personal stories.
After the church service, a military aircraft will take McCain’s body back east for a lying-in-state at the U.S. Capitol on Friday, a service at the Washington National Cathedral on Saturday, and burial at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.
Here in Utah, flags are flying at half-staff until sunset on Sunday, Sept. 2 when McCain is laid to rest.
