The body of John McCain lies in state at the U.S. Capitol in Washington on Friday, in Washington, D.C.

The nation continues its farewell to John McCain, the 35-year U.S. senator from Arizona and Vietnam hero.

On Saturday, McCain's procession from the U.S. Capitol to the Washington National Cathedral for a formal funeral service will pause by the Vietnam Memorial.

Two former presidents — Democrat Barack Obama and Republican George W. Bush — will speak at the funeral to be attended by hundreds of dignitaries, but not President Donald Trump, who was disinvited from the service.
