LAWTON, Okla. (AP) - An exhibit honoring 17 members of the Comanche Nation who used their language as a code during World War II is set to open in Southwestern Oklahoma.
   
The exhibit opening Thursday coincides with the upcoming expected presentation of Congressional Gold Medals to families of the Code Talkers in Washington D.C. later this year.
   
An event commemorating the opening of the exhibit is to take place at McMahon Auditorium in Lawton. Family members of the Code Talkers are expected to attend and the son of the Code Talkers' platoon commander will speak.
