Stevens To Be Buried At Arlington Cemetery

Late Sen. Ted Stevens will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery near Washington, D.C., in a ceremony with relatives and friends.

In a statement Friday, the family said the decorated World War II pilot and president pro tempore of the Senate will be buried Tuesday afternoon with honors.

The 86-year-old Stevens was one of five people killed Aug. 9 in a plane crash while on a fishing trip near Dillingham in southwest Alaska.
