Description:

Code Talker, Mr. Peter McDonald, and his fellow Code Talkers are presented with the American Spirit Award.

The American Spirit Awards Gala celebrates individuals and organizations whose work reflects the values and spirit of those who served our country during the World War II years. We honor those who inspire others through their own acts of courage, sacrifice, initiative, and generosity—particularly in the areas of leadership, service to a country or community, and education.

 

Proceeds from the American Spirit Awards support educational programming at The National WWII Museum—including the ongoing development of classroom materials and professional-development opportunities for teachers in schools across the country, as well as online experiences that bring the Museum and its resources to students around the world.
