N.H. honors 4 fallen soldiers

Posted
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Four fallen soldiers are being remembered at New Hampshire's second Medal of Honor ceremony.

The award was created to honor any New Hampshire citizen who has given his or her life while in the line of military duty since Nov. 4, 1979, the date when a group of militants took over the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, holding U.S. hostages in captivity for 444 days.

Gov. John Lynch, who signed the law creating the medal in 2007, awarded 54 medals during the first ceremony held last year. On Friday, he'll be joined by military officials and the families of four soldiers.
