ATLANTA - State officials are preparing to honor a group of veterans at the state Capitol building.

The Georgia Department of Veterans Services says Governor Nathan Deal is scheduled to honor 12 Georgians who were awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for their service in the Vietnam War on March 25.
