Many people don't know that during WW II, the US used Navajo tribesmen
in its radio communications in the Pacific Theater. The Japanese
didn't have ANYBODY that could speak or understand native American languages. Drove the Japanese nuts..

It was not just the Navajo. Other nations were used in a similar
manner. The Navajo just seem to have gotten the most exposure in
years. I say recent because what they did was still consideredhis
classified for decades after the war ended.
The USA owes them a lot.
I might add that I have a book with descriptions of many of them (and photos). Also, I once had the opportunity to talk with one during a
trip which included a stop at the Navajo nation. I also talked with
son, who did not know what his father did in WWII for decades after it

If you're into this sort of thing, a fellow named David Kahn wrote a
book on the subject back in the 1970s, updated in the 1990s,
titled "The Codebreakers." I found it a very good read, but then I
was into that sort of thing back then. Still have the books, though.
