Sen. Daniel Inouye's coffin will arrive at the National Memorial of the Pacific at Punchbowl at about 10 a.m. on Sunday.
His casket will pass flags at half-staff, there will be 19 shots from cannons near the entrance, a three-gun volley, as well as a F-22 flyover by fighter jets, which was cleared in short order by the Federal Aviation Administration on Thursday.
Dozens of dignitaries, many sitting congressional members, will be flying in from Washington D.C. to remember their dear friend and colleague in his home state.
"We have a congressional delegation, maybe one or two planes coming in from Washington DC. just carrying Congress people," said cemetery spokesperson Nadine Siak.
On a table behind the dedicatory stone will be a picture of the senator, five flags, including a senate flag, along with three more American flags that will be presented to his wife Irene, his son, and his three-year-old granddaughter.
The ceremony is expected to last about an hour, and will feature four speakers, including Sen. Harry Reid.
It will include a strong military presence, including the Army Band, ushers, the color guard, and more, also arriving from Washington D.C.
"This is going to be a military funeral and there are a lot of military commands who want to be involved," she said.
The senator will join his first wife, Maggie in the same plot buried at Punchbowl, with his second wife, Irene, having the option to do the same.
Inouye's family said the late senator will be buried at a later date in a private ceremony.
