The six Code Talkers, during the five-week battle for Iwo Jima, sent over 800 messages without a single error. Their signal officer Major Howard Connor said, “Were it not for the Navajos, the Marines would never have taken Iwo Jima.” The Japanese were never able to break their code. Despite their heroic service to our country, the efforts of the 400 Navajo Marines remained classified until 1968. The government prohibited them from talking about their unique contributions to anyone, including their families. The public remained ignorant of the dedication and sacrifices of these exceptional men for another 23 years. The irony lies in the fact that these courageous Americans were not officially recognized, nor were they granted the right to vote in all fifty states until 1962—17 years after the end of the war. Incredulously, despite their origins and over a hundred years of service to this country, including under George Washington in the Revolutionary War, they could not claim American Citizenship until 1924.
