Navajo code talker dies in Arizona

A prominent veteran of the Navajo code talkers who confounded enemy combatants in World War II by using the Navajo language as a battlefield cipher in the South Pacific has died, a veteran’s association said.

Keith Little, 87, served in the US Marine Corps 4th Marine Division in the Pacific and was president of the Navajo Code Talkers Association.

He died on Tuesday evening at a medical centre in Fort Defiance, Arizona — via redwolf.newsvine.com
