Navajo Code Talkers

Tuesday, November 20 @ 7:00 PM

Woodbridge Main Library - Ground Floor Meeting Room

The Woodbridge Main Library presents Navajo Code Talkers, hosted by former US Marine officer and Vietnam combat veteran, Don Buzney on Tuesday, November 20, 2018 at 7PM. Don will explore the critical role a thousand year old language played in winning the war in the Pacific, during World War II. Don will trace the origin of their language, its specific use during the war, and the way in which the coded messages were transmitted without ever being detected by enemy soldiers. 
 
Don is the creator and host of “The Veterans Corner,” a weekly live radio program, which airs on Rutgers University Radio, WRSU – 88.7FM. “The Veteran Corner” seeks to honor the service and sacrifice of active duty military, veterans, and their families, while raising public awareness of veteran issues. Don is also a former crew member of the SS United States and worked for the Navajo Nation in New Mexico, where he has had many interactions with the Navajo Code Talkers.
 
This program is free and open to all.  No registration is needed.
