Code Talkers Being Honored in Washington, D.C.



Bookmark and Share

A ceremony in Washington, D.C., later this month will honor Native American code talkers from North and South Dakota for their service during World Wars I and II.
 
The Standing Rock Sioux and Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate tribes are among 33 in the nation being honored at the Congressional Gold Medal ceremony November 20.

Code talkers used their native language to send communications that enemies could not decode.

The Congressional Gold Medal is one of the highest honors bestowed by Congress.
