WWII Code Talkers - WTOC-TV: Savannah, Beaufort, SC, News, Weather & Sports

WWII Code Talkers

One of the original 29 Code Talkers was on hand in Savannah today, teaching people more about Native Americans and their tribes. During World War II, Native Americans formed a code using the Navajo language so the japanese would not be able to break it, and they didn't. Code Talker Chester Naz says the work he and his fellow code workers did was invaluable to this country.

"If it wasnt for the Code Talkers, we would have lost the war," he said. "We saved thousands and thousands of lives during World War II."

The conference wraps up tomorrow.
