WASHINGTON, DC -- This morning, the White House flag is flying high.

 

On Saturday, the flag was flown at half-staff for just a few hours that day, on Sunday it was raised. 

Traditionally, the flag is not raised to full staff until after the burial.

Senator McCain will be laid to rest on Sunday, at the Naval Academy.
