During World War II, the U.S. Marine Corps recruited Navajo Indians to create a code based on their unwritten language to help the military secretly communicate their operational plans. In a series of interviews, former Navajo Code Talker Teddy Draper talked about his early life and World War II service. Conducted between 2004 and 2006, the interviews took place at Mr. Draper’s home on the Navajo Nation tribal lands in Arizona, and in Guam, one of several islands where he served during the war. close
