Of the more than 430 Navajo Code Talkers that served the United States in secret during World War II, only about 35 are still alive to tell their story.
Peter MacDonald, president of the code talkers, sat down with Larry Michael at the National Museum of the Marine Corps to talk about the legacy of these Native Americans and how to preserve it.
“It really produced significant results and ended the war in the Pacific,” MacDonald said. “We believe that’s a legacy not only belonging to a Navajo legacy or a Marine Corps legacy, but we believe it’s a legacy for all America.”
