While Veterans Day may have just passed, we do not just honor the veterans of the armed forces on just that one day of the year. As part of Native American Heritage Month, why not check out part of The Library of Congress' Veterans History Project dedicated to Native American veterans? While the most famous of contributions of Native Americans to the United States war effort were the Navajo Code Talkers, that only scratches the surface of the role that these men and women have played in protecting this country and the freedoms we enjoy each and every day.

Take a look into the site today, and maybe you'll learn something new. We also have great resources at your local library branch, as well, so stop in any time (that we're open, of course).
