History: WWII | Navajo Code Talkers

The story of the Navajo Code Talkers begins in 1940 when a small group of Chippewas and Oneidas became a part of the radio communications 32nd Infantry Division. Soon after, Sac and Fox tribes joined in the ranks as combat radiomen. The complexity of Navajo linguistics allowed it to become an ideal choice to be used in code due to the lack of documentation made available for learning to speak the language and ability for the same words to mean multiple things based on sound. The legacy of the Navajo Code Talkers will continue as many documentary and stories have been shared about their journey since it’s declassification during Reagan’s Administration. [from navajocodetalkers.org]
In memoriam of the last of the 29 original Navajo Code Talkers, Chester Nez, who passed on June 4, 2014, at age 93. Thank you for your service.
