The Nebraska National Guard has scheduled an honors ceremony for soldiers who have been awarded medals for their valor or their wounds.

The Guard says the ceremony will be held at noon Tuesday in the
Capitol's Warner Chamber.

A special memorial will be held for Staff Sgt. Patrick Hamburger, of Grand Island. He was among 30 Americans and eight
Afghans who died August 6, 2011, when a rocket-propelled grenade
downed their Chinook helicopter during a combat mission.
