Cypher machines, or machines that create coded messages, did not work well in the jungles of the Pacific Islands during World War II. However, the United States military needed coded messages to send secret information from the battle lines to air bases and other locations. Native Americans who spoke the Navajo language helped solve this problem.
The Navajo “code talkers,” as they became known, used English code words that they translated into their language to send messages. The Japanese military could hear these coded messages, but they could not understand their meanings. The Navajo language was not well known. - Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
What a fascinating piece of American WW ll history! I do not recall hearing about this holiday until searching for a topic for today's post. It is good to honor all of our war history, our veterans, and the services they provided. Thank You.
Navajo Indian Code Talkers provided a vitally important service to the war effort. Americans should aim to learn more about the resources our country provided in the past, as well as our current assets. For instance, did you know that several of the world's finest, most pure and therapeutic essential oils are sourced from the United States? • Cedarwood • Grapefruit • Hawaiian Sandalwood • Peppermint • Roman Chamomile
