"John McCain’s final journey from his Arizona ranch is ending on a grassy hill at the U.S. Naval Academy within view of the Severn River and earshot of midshipmen present and future," AP's Susan Walsh reports.

The big picture: "Invited along with family and friends were members of McCain’s Class of 1958, military leaders and Brigade of Midshipmen." Tributes at the private ceremony were expected from Sen. Lindsey Graham; retired general and former CIA director David Petraeus; and one of McCain’s sons, Jack, a naval aviator who was to wear his father's Navy wings.
