    The Code Talker program is such a fascinating bit of history.

    This guy was a real hero who had a big role in Allied victory in WW2.

    Also, despite this country’s very troubled history with its native population, I love that we used an element of this country’s amazing diversity to beat the Axis powers, many of whose ideologies were based on racial superiority.

    I’ll upvote for the honorable man, but that title was really unnecessary.

    My grandfather passed away yesterday at the age of 98. He served in the army during WWII, and he has a letter of appreciation from NASA hanging on his wall. He has always refused to tell me what he did in the service and how he got that letter.

    Pay some respect by upvoting this? Because I’m pretty sure he didn’t do it for the recognition or the karma on reddit, he did it because he was a patriot.

    I have won no world wars, or wars. I have, however, lived next to, gone to school with and intentionally gotten to know members of the Navajo Tribe.

    They’re great people. To me, it’s unsurprising they were heroes of a war that fractured the world. In the face of institutional racism, prejudice and derision they managed to make their useful skills valuable and validate themselves through peerless work. They overcame.

    Consider acquainting yourself with your local tribal nation. You’ll probably be surprised how enmeshed their histories are with out nation. You’ll probably also be surprised at how adept these people were at kicking the shit out of the US Army.

    Ever since I first heard of them in grade school, I idolized the Navajo Code Talkers for their war efforts and unique skills. Mr.Willie Sr.’s passing makes me sad to think that one day, all of the Navajo soldiers will be gone. But I will still think of them a heros.
