Sen. John McCain will lie in state at the Arizona State Capitol Wednesday, on what would have been his 82nd birthday.
Only two other people have had the same honor in the last 40 years: Arizona State Senator Marilyn Jarrett in 2006 and Olympic gold medalist Jesse Owens in 1980.
McCain died Saturday at his family’s ranch near Sedona after battling an aggressive form of brain cancer for over a year.
The events on Aug. 29 will begin with a private ceremony followed by a chance for everyone to pay their respects to Sen. McCain.
