Navajo Code Talker Dies

Navajo Code Talkers in 1943.

The US Army Heritage and Education Center kicked off its Native American Heritage Month yesterday, November 1st, to honor the contributions American Indians have made to the US Army and to the nation. 

Sadly, on that note, I just found out about the death of George Smith, 90, a World War II Marine Corps veteran and one of the famed Navajo Code Talkers that served so honorably in World War II.  The contributions that these men made in the war effort against Japan cannot be understated.  They were all brave men and deserved to be recognized much earlier than they were.

Please click on the link to learn a bit more about Mr. Smith, another humble man from the WWII generation that rarely spoke about his service.
