Area Highway To Be 'Medal Of Honor Highway'

Medal of Honor recipients from Idaho will soon be honored throughout the state with the naming of highways.

Gov. Butch Otter recently signed into law Senate Bill 1050, which designates Highway 3 as North Idaho's Medal of Honor Highway. The Coeur d'Alene Press has the story on how many area Medal of Honor recipients there are and which highway will be named after them.
