    The last of the 29 men who developed an unbreakable code from their native tongue is gone. Many more came later and used the code with great success.

    Ah, that is sad! I was born up in Northern Arizona in Page, which was right next to the Navajo reservation. I had many Navajo friends, but could never pickup a word of their language.

    So many of these great soldiers from WW II are leaving us as time marches on. Please - if you know any WW II vets, talk to them and hear their stories. They are of a generation unlike any in the history of the world.

    ---

    Rest in peace, good sir! You served the US and the Navajo people with honor and bravery...

    Fixed.

    He's more american than anyone. It's their land.

    They took your land away. Used you. Send you back to your reserve, along with the entirety of your people. They call you red but know that your skin's a beautiful brown. Now your language is known as just a code.

    I hope he died surrounded by lots of John Woo explosions and people flying through the air brandishing dual guns.

    Protect the code!
