Never knew that the code talkers had their own day of remembrance.

The Choctaws were the first but apparently the Navajos have a better PR department. The sad irony is my grandmother was in an awesome state-run boarding school getting whipped for using her native tongue while our code talkers were saving lives.

Yes, I'm a Mississippian and well aware of the WW1 participation by the Choctaw and Cherokee code talkers. And what was done to the American (and Canadian) Indian children was abhorrent.

About 15 years ago we traveled out west and on on the way to Monument Valley, through the Navajo reservation stopped to eat at a local Burger King and ran into this "Windtalker" exhibit:

There is also a Windtalker museum in Tuba City too.

ColCampbell +1 Many minorities did heroic deeds in the World Wars and beyond. I salute them all.
