14 Comanches took part in the invasion of Normandy June 6, 1944 and served in Europe in the 4th Infantry Division. The Comanche Code Talkers created a code of more than 100 words. Many Comanches were wounded but none was killed.

In 1989, the French government awarded to each code talker Comanche title of Knight of the National Order of Merit.
