        WASHINGTON, DC: The Congressional Gold Medal presented to the Choctaw Nation code talkers is displayed during a ceremony in Emancipation Hall at the U.S. Capitol Visitors Center November 20, 2013 in Washington, DC. Medals were presented to individual representatives of the 33 Native American tribes whose members served as military code talkers during World War I and World War II. Hundreds of Native Americans served in the world wars as code talkers, soldiers who developed codes built upon their native languages to transmit secret tactical messages over military telephone or radio communications during World War II.
