30th Anniversary of National Navajo Code Talker’s Day - On July 28, 1982, President Reagan declared Aug. 14 “National Navajo Code Talker’s Day.” The Navajo code talkers were a group of young Navajo men who created a secret code derived from their unwritten language and used it on the battlefields during WWII. It is the only unbroken code in modern military history. It baffled the Japanese forces of WWII. It was even indecipherable to a Navajo soldier taken prisoner and tortured on Bataan. In fact, during test evaluations, Marine cryptologists said they couldn’t even transcribe the language, much less decode it.

Today we honor those brave young men for their dedication and undying spirit through service to their country. You can celebrate by taking the time to learn more about the Navajo Code Talkers and supporting the Navajo Code Talker’s Foundation at http://www.navajocodetalkers.org
