National Navajo Code Talkers Day #NavajoCodes


Today is National Navajo Code Talkers Day, a day to honor the Native Veterans who served in World War II. As stated in Proclamation 4954 by Ronald Reagan:

The Navaho Nation, when called upon to serve the United States, contributed a precious commodity never before used in this way. In the midst of the fighting in the Pacific during World War II, a gallant group of men from the Navaho Nation utilized their language in coded form to help speed the Allied victory.

Equipped with the only foolproof, unbreakable code in the history of warfare, the code talkers confused the enemy with an earful of sounds never before heard by code experts. The dedication and unswerving devotion to duty shown by the men of the Navaho Nation in serving as radio code talkers in the Marine Corps during World War II should serve as a fine example for all Americans.

Check out this video interview Kieth Little, a real code talker, from Navajo Code:
