ATLANTA (AP) - ATLANTA - Georgians who were awarded the Medal of Honor for their service during Vietnam will be honored at a ceremony at the State Capitol.
    
The ceremony is planned for 11 a.m. Tuesday in the North Wing of the State Capitol in Atlanta.
    
The Georgia Department of Veterans Services plans to individually recognize each of the state's 12 native sons who were awarded the Medal of Honor during the Vietnam War.
    
State officials say an estimated 254,000 Georgia residents - about one-third of the state's total veteran population - are Vietnam veterans.
