Wednesday Hero: Tlingit Code Talkers

Tlingit Code Talkers

Tlingit Code Talkers

We all know about the Navajo Code Talkers, but chances are you’ve never heard of the Tlingit Code Talkers from Alaska. During a ceremony on November 20, they were finally recognized for the contribution in the war with Congressional Gold Medals.These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived

  1. I did a separate post myself on these remarkable men; outstanding!

    • Is that this one–G-2 Intelligence, Code Talkers? Great read. I love language as a general topic, too. I had no idea the “Diné language has no alphabet, uses no symbols and one sound may hold an entire concept”. Communication is fascinating.

      • Yes, you found the one (actually wanted it longer). Various languages are very interesting, how they developed and how they are comprehended, indeed.
