The family of former Senator Ted Stevens says he will be buried September 28 at Arlington National Cemetery near Washington, D.C., in a ceremony with relatives and friends.

In a statement issued today, the family said the decorated World War II pilot and president pro tempore of the Senate will be buried with honors. Stevens was one of five people killed earlier this month in a plane crash while on a fishing trip near Dillingham.
