John McCain, ‘The Maverick of The U.S. Senate’ Who Served His Country Honorably; We Salute And Celebrate Your Life; Rest In Peace, God Bless Your Family

bY CRIMSON TAZVINZWA//He will overlook the Severn River, surrounded by birds chirping from the large maple and sycamore trees that flank his final resting place.

At the bottom of a green hill speckled by hundreds of gravesites for Naval lieutenants, midshipmen, commanders and admirals — some of whose service concluded centuries ago — Sen. John McCain will have a front-row view of sailboats and ships passing on the river while a new generation of naval officers play soccer on Sherman Field at the U.S. Naval Academy.

His legacy here isn’t focused on his six terms as an Arizona senator or his two presidential bids. In the place where he will be put to rest, McCain is a national treasure, respected hero and one of the city’s most prized naval officers in recent memory.

It’s the place where his career began. It’s where he wanted it to end.
