At the Fox 2/9 Co Reunion in Flagstaff AZ we had a chance meeting with Peter MacDonald,
a World War II Navajo Code Talker. He was 90+ years young.

He spent about an hour explaining the problem and the eventual acceptance of the Navajo men
into the Marine Corps to be trained to talk code in an effort to communicate vital information without
the Japanese knowing what was being said. He was fascinating and we were mesmerized.

Thousands of American lives were saved as a result of their efforts.

Far and away the best reunion ever. When you see the Grand Canyon and a Navajo Code Talker all in one trip!
Semper Fi!
