Me deepest sympathies to the Oliver family. If not for a true American, I would not be able to type this comment nor be able to speak out loud. Sgt. W.V. Oliver laid the foundations for our great nation to survive and thrive through the darkest hours in my generation. To ALL of the Code Talkers and the Navajo Nation, me and my familie offer our heartfelt thank you for your sacrifice. May the sun always shine on you, and the rain nourish your fields.

i have not been on this forum for quite awhile. my father often marveled at the intelligence that the code talkers displayed in the way they could intercept. we owe so much to these heros. without them, where would so many be? let us never forget the sacrifice made by so many. i too miss my father. so many veterans of the war are leaving us everyday.
