Navajo Code Talker

Peter MacDonald Sr., a Navajo Code Talker, speaks to a crowd Friday, March 20 at Naval Air Station Fort Worth Joint Reserve Base, Texas. During World War II more than 300 Navajo were recruited by the U.S. Marine Corp for the purposes of developing an unbreakable code, which they did so successfully. These Marines were credited with saving thousands of American lives during the war. There are currently less than 30 code talkers living. (U.S. Air Force Photo/Staff Sgt. Melissa Harvey)
