HOPI CODE TALKER NEWS
Congressional Gold Medals were awarded to 25 Native American tribes in recognition of the dedication and valor of tribe members who had served as Code Talkers in the United States Armed Forces during World War I and World War II. The medals were awarded at a ceremony held in Emancipation Hall in the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center on November 20, 2013. Congratulations to our friends in the Hopi Tribe for this long-deserved recognition!
With the support of the 380th Bomb Group Association for our Hopi Code Talkers, Acoma Code Talkers and Apache Code Talkers, our nation finally will honor all Native American Code Talkers this year at the national level.
With my regards
Eugene "Geno" Talas, Director
