Veterans Day Collection Items

In commemoration of Veterans Day, we will offer our Veterans Day Collection, which features commemorative items, including replicas of the Congressional Gold Medal that was given to the Tlingit tribe in honor of the nation’s Tlingit code talkers. Alaska’s Tlingit code talkers included Robert Jeff David, Sr., Richard Bean, Sr., George Lewis, Jr., and brothers Harvey Jacobs and Mark Jacobs, Jr. The Congressional Gold Medal, which is the nation’s highest civilian honor, was given posthumously to the men in 2013.
