Navajo Code Talkers

The Navajo Code Talkers transmitted secret messages using an unbreakable code that continually baffled Japanese forces in the Pacific Theater during World War II. The accuracy and speed at which 800 communications were sent and received (without any errors) in the first two days of The Battle of Iwo Jima alone played a pivotal role in the war by allowing the United States to capture an island controlled by the Japanese Empire.

“Were it not for the Navajos, the Marines would never have taken Iwo Jima,” said Major Howard Connor, 5th Marine Division signal officer of the Navajos.
