America’s Most Patriotic Small Town

Gallup has been named America’s most Patriotic Small Town by map and atlas publisher Rand McNally.

The Gallup area has a rich history of acknowledging the heroic contributions of diverse cultures.  We are the home of the WWII Navajo Code Talkers and Korean War Medal of Honor Recipient Mr. Hershey Miyamura as well as surviving members of the Bataan Death March and what later became known as "Battling Bastards of Bataan", officially known as The 442nd.

Modern Gallup is friendly to the veterans who have served our country in recent conflicts and features Vet-Friendly hotels among their amenities.

Visit the following for experiences that pay tribute to our military and veterans:

The Comfort Suites on Gallup's East End also hosts a one-of-a-kind Veterans Museum in the lobby.

The Gallup McKinley County Chamber of Commerce is host to the Navajo Code Talkers Exhibit.

Our downtown Courthouse Square is home to the beautiful Veteran's Pillars, which lists residents of the Gallup area that have served in war.
