Arlington, Texas (AP) -- Ground was broken Friday for a new museum in Texas to honor those who have been awarded the nation's highest military honor.

The National Medal of Honor Museum will be built in Arlington, just west of Dallas. The museum will tell the stories of the recipients of the medal, which is awarded by Congress for risking life in combat beyond the call of duty.
