Code talkers


Recommended Posts

Listening to "our American stories" tonight and it featured Peter McDonald. He lied about his age and joined the marines at 15. I was unable to find the program online but learned some interesting things while surfing the web. 

He is one of the last three remaining code talkers. Everything was from memorization.  For phonetics of terms they didn't have a word for, they had to agree on 3 different words for each letter of the alphabet so as not to help the enemy figure out the code.

Another thing I didn't know was that other Indian languages were utilized in earlier wars. 

Pretty interesting stuff!
