Event description

Description

On November 15, 2017 the MacArthur Memorial will screen the film: Navajo Code Talkers: In Their Own Words (58 mins). This documentary tells the story of a group of young men of the Navajo Nation who served with distinction in the USMC during World War II. It was taped on locations in Iwo Jima, Okinawa, Saipan, Guam, Tinian, the Navajo Nation in Arizona and New Mexico and at Camp Pendleton, CA where the Navajo recruits created a complex code in their unwritten language for battlefield use. The code created by these young Marines was never broken by the Japanese, giving American troops an upper hand in many battles during the Marines’ “island-hopping” campaign that ultimately led to Japan’s surrender in 1945.
