BERLIN, N.H. (AP) - An American Legion post operating inside the state prison in Berlin, New Hampshire, for veterans who are inmates is formally being dedicated.

Post 123 is being formally named Tuesday for a soldier who was killed in Afghanistan in 2012. Sgt. 1st Class Ryan Savard was originally from Jefferson.

The 29-year-old died from small arms fire while on patrol during combat operations.

The Berlin post got its charter in 2013. It is holding a Memorial Day ceremony.
