#AceHistoryNews – Aug.14: From 1942 to 1945, hundreds of code talkers participated in every US marine assault in the Pacific, transmitting information in an unbreakable code

When Navajo servicemen used their native Indian language to create an unbreakable code, they helped the Allies get one step closer to victory over Japan in the second world war – a contribution celebrated on Friday as Navajo Code Talkers Day.

From 1942 to 1945, approximately 400 code talkers participated in every marine assault in the Pacific, as they transmitted important information by telephone and radio.
