"U.S. Capitol Police Officer and AF Veteran, Brian D. Sicknick, sustained fatal injuries during the siege at the Capitol earlier this month, will lie in the Capitol rotunda as an honor to his service.Officials will hold a ceremonial arrival at 9:30 p.m. next Tuesday on the east front entrance of the Capitol, the announcement said. A viewing period will commence at 10:00 p.m. for members of the U.S. Capitol Police and continue overnight. Members of Congress are invited to attend the viewing period from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, February 3rd. Sicknick will lie in honor, rather than in state, in the Capitol rotunda, because he is a private citizen. Members of the public will be able to pay their respects during this period."
