One of the few remaining Navajo Code Talkers from World War II has passed.
George Smith died Tuesday, 30 October 2012, aged 90. He will be buried with full military honors on Saturday, 3 November 2012 at Rehobeth Cemetery near Gallup, NM.
During World War II, Smith served with the 2nd Marine Division at Saipan, Okinawa, and other locations.
The story of the Navajo Code Talkers is fairly well known. If you don’t know it, you should visit this site and spend a few minutes.
Rest in peace, my elder brother in arms.
