Honoring the Code

Navajo Code Talkers present colors at DNCAt a convention filled with famous people, the Code Talkers were celebrities, Roanhorse said.

“It was quite an experience. We’ve never been to one like that before,” Little, who is president of the Navajo Code Talkers Association, said.

“We shook a lot of hands of people we didn’t even know,” Little said. “A lot of conversations, a lot of questions asked.”
And:“We had all these TV people that came around with the cameras and took a shot of us. They interviewed some of the guys. We were really recognized during that time,” Toledo said.

“They just thanked us for what we did in World War II,” he said.

One of those people who thanked them for their service was pop singer Ashlee Simpson, Roanhorse said. The Code Talkers also met Dean and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, he said.
