My latest addition, a Navajo Code Talker.
In the South Pacific part of WWII, the Japanese were excellent code breakers. The Navajo language
wasn't exactly code, basically phonetic and a bit complicated, but there were no known written forms
existing. Starting with two, by the end of the war there were 400 active Navajo "Code Talkers." After
the war they were discharged with no fanfare, and told to keep the code a secret. In 1969, the code
talkers were first officially recognized for their efforts.
The figure is a talker, by pushing a button on his back. He says seven phrases in the Navajo language,
followed by the english translation. I had thought about getting one of these some years back, and
was able to get this one recently for $18 USD. I'm very happy with the purchase. I hope you like him.
