The Navajo Code Talkers played a vital role in the World War II Allies' victory in the Pacific.
Using a code based on the complex Navajo language, the Code Talkers were able to transmit and decode in 20 seconds a message that would have taken a machine 30 minutes to decipher. The code was impossible for the Japanese to break because it required decryption by Navajo speakers - none of whom were available to the Japanese. Many who fought in the War believe that the Allies would never have prevailed at Iwo Jima - or in other crucial battles - were it not for the Navajo code talkers.
In 2001, President George W. Bush presented golden medals to honor the 29 Navajo code talkers of World War II. In a separate ceremony that fall, each Navajo who trained and qualified as a Code Talker, or a surviving family member, have been presented a silver medal.
