National Day for All Native American Code Talkers

We have an issue that is very important to the Native American people and our Government. I think that there should be a National holiday for the Native American Navajo Code-talkers. Our government never gave them full recognition for the saving of our flag and freedom.

Why is this important?

We need to commemorate and honor those Code Talkers who devoted their lives for a country that didn't recognize their existence until well after World Wars I and II ended. A national day will recognize all Veterans, Native and non-Native, and highlight the contributions of a small group and have such an extraordinary impact.
