Code Talker to get his medal
Facebook Twitter Email

Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D-N.M.) will personally give Navajo Code Talker David Tsosie his Congressional silver medal, The Farmington Daily-Times reports today.

Tsosie was to get his medal last fall but the Navajo Nation "uninvited" him, citing lack of proof. The U.S. Marines, at the urging of New Mexico's Congressional delegation, confirmed Tsosie's status.

The ceremony will take place March 9 at Tsosie's nursing home in New Mexico. The city of Bloomfield is being urged to declare the day "David Tsosie Day."
