Navajo Code Talkers

You can imagine the necessity of secure communications during World War II. Codes were broken left and right – on all sides – and you didn’t always know if the message you’d just received was really from your own men or impostors.

And then the Navajo Code Talkers entered the picture. The Navajo language is so unique that the enemy never stood a chance of breaking the radio code they’d based on their native tongue.

Kee Etsicitty, one of these great men, passed away last month at the age of 92.
