You Haven’t Seen These Resources for the Code Talker Gold Ceremony

13 Resources Honoring All Code Talkers

It’s been three years today since the largest Congressional Gold Medal Ceremony took place in Washington, D.C. in 2013.  On November 20, family members and hundreds of other invited guests joined the U.S. Mint to celebrate the unique service of all American Indian Code Talkers of World War I and World War II. It was one of the most memorable and inspiring days of my life.  I’ve gathered some links for you to experience the ceremony yourself.
