Three of the Navajo Code Talkers, all in their eighties, have died in the past two weeks. Read about John Brown Jr., Thomas Claw, and Willie K. Begay.
Read about Code Talker Sam Tso, very much still with us, whom we met in Lukachukai, Arizona, on the Navajo Reservation back in March.
And today being the 65th anniversary of D-Day, whose veterans are quickly leaving us too, read about Jim Norene, who died in his sleep last night, in France, after his final visit to the American Cemetery at Colleville-Sur-Mer. Said President Obama of Norene during his speech at the cemetery, “May he now rest in peace with the boys he once bled with, and may his family always find solace in the heroism he showed here.”
Of them all.
