Code Talkers

Navajo Code Talkers: Of the approximately 400 Navajos who trained as code talkers, only about 50 are still alive, most of them living in the Navajo Nation that includes part of New Mexico, Arizona and Utah. Today, for the first time, a group of 13 code talkers will take part in the Veterans Day parade in New York City.

You should click the link and read the whole article. Yes, Nicolas Cage starred in a bad movie about the code talkers. Don't let that stop you from reading the article.

    I saw the coverage of them in the parade, which was a lot bigger than past years. They still looked pretty good.
