Family, friends and others gathered to pay respects and send off the senator.

"I gave her a medallion that was presented to me over two years ago, during Operation Freedom Bird", Carrasco told the Post, appearing to refer to an event held by Operation Freedom Bird, a non-profit aimed at helping Arizona combat veterans from all wars, including Vietnam. Also paying tribute will be Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald.

Also that day, President Donald Trump was accused of insensitivity to McCain's death, as the flag atop the White House was returned to full staff while those at the U.S. Capitol and elsewhere around Washington remained at half-staff.

Users who searched for information about the Russell Senate Office Building in Google search on desktop were given the option to see results about the "McCain Senate Office Building".

Governor Ducey said that McCain "brought us above politics" doing so with "humor and humanity and without compromising the principles he held so dear". "It was what John McCain had done and demonstrated over and over and over again". John McCain, the maverick politician and former prisoner of war who died at 81.

People holding USA flags and campaign style placards with the word "McCain" lined part of the 8-mile (13-kilometer) route that the motorcade with McCain's casket will take from the Arizona State Capitol to the church. Jeff Flake delivered a touching benediction.

Veteran Judith Hatch handed out flags to people in the crowd, saying Arizona lost a champion for the military.

McCain, the son and grandson of Navy admirals, will be laid to rest beside his Naval Academy classmate and lifelong friend, the late Admiral Chuck Larson, organizers said.

Mattis again hints at resumption of joint military exercises with South Korea
But North Korea has yet to prove a willingness to give up its nuclear weapons program unilaterally, as the White House demanded. South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Thursday (Aug 30) nominated the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff as defence minister.

Part of the 8-mile (13-kilometer) route was lined with US flags and campaign-style placards that simply read "McCain".

Members of the public carry umbrellas as they line up to pay their respects to Sen.

Following a Thursday memorial, Mr McCain's body will be flown to the nation's capital where he will lie in state on Friday at the US Capitol before a Saturday funeral at the Washington National Cathedral.

The viewing later in the day will go on as long as people are waiting in line, said Rick Davis, McCain's former presidential campaign manager.

Electronic signs on freeways in the Phoenix area paid tribute to the late Arizona Sen.

For some Arizona residents, McCain has been a political fixture for their complete lives. He took office in the state in the early 1980s, first as a congressman and then as a senator.

The main speech in tribute to McCain was to be delivered by Biden, a friend and former six-term Democratic senator from DE who was elected vice president as the running mate of McCain's rival for the White House, Barack Obama, who defeated McCain in the 2008 presidential race.

People carrying campaign style placards with the word "McCain" and holding USA flags lined part of the part of the 8-mile (13-kilometer) route the motorcade was taking Thursday to the North Phoenix Baptist Church. Musical decisions encompass a recessional to "My Plot" by Frank Sinatra.
