Ted Will Be Buried with Brothers

Ted Kennedy will be buried beside his brothers Robert Kennedy and John F. Kennedy in Arlington National Cemetery. A burial at Arlington is considered a powerful symbol of Ted Kennedy's service to the country as a senator and also during his time serving as a soldier in the Army. Being laid to rest beside both of his brothers, who were assassinated, would also highlight the tradition of public service in the Kennedy clan. John F. Kennedy is one of only two presidents buried at Arlington, though all presidents are eligible. The funeral services will begin Thursday morning, when Kennedy's body will taken via motorcade from Hyannis Port to the JFK Presidential Library and Museum in Boston. There will be a public viewing on Thursday and Friday afternoon. Later on Friday afternoon, Senators John Kerry and John McCain as well as Vice President Biden will speak at Kennedy's wake. On Saturday, President Obama will address his funeral mass before Kennedy's body is flown to Arlington Cemetery.
