March 9 has been declared "David Tsosie Day" in honor of the Navajo Code Talker who will finally get his Congressional silver medal after a long wait.

David Tsosie lives at a nursing home in Bloomfield, New Mexico, where mayor Keith Johnson issued the proclamation to honor him. A special ceremony will be held Saturday for Tsosie, who will be presented his medal by Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D-N.M.)

This past Friday, Tsosie was the guest of honor at a banquet held by the American Indian Science and Engineering Society.
