Honoring the Code Talkers, November 20, 2013

On Capitol Hill, the soldiers who served as “Code Talkers” during World War II were honored with the Congressional Gold Medal for their duty at conveying confidential information through their native languages. The Pueblo of Acoma and Pueblo of Laguna were two of the 33 tribes to be recognized with the award. The tradition of answering the call of duty runs deep in New Mexico's history.
