ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- 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 and alongside a lifelong friend.

A private service at the academy's chapel followed by a procession to the burial site marked the farewell Sunday to a man who lived a very public life. The private ceremony is the final event of nearly a week of remembrances stretching from Arizona to Washington to Annapolis, Maryland.
