Native American Veterans

Prairie Band of Potawatomi Veteran

Native American veteran's have a strong feeling of being represented as Native American's, it shows how a Native American with strong traditional beliefs can seek not just the recognition of duty and service to his or her country, but his or her service to the Native American community.

American Indians have participated willingly with great distinction in the United States military for more than 200 years.

It is estimated that more than 19,000 American Indians have served in the United States military since World war I, coming from many different tribes Code Talkers Link

A old Native American tradition, especially in the Plains Tribes, was that any time a that a warrior went to war, he would only wear new handmade moccasins.  This happened because the thought was that the new moccasins would help him return home safely.  If he was killed in battle, the new moccasins would make his journey into the afterlife easier and guide him in the right direction. place.  Please take the time to hear my plea.
