***Special Mission***

Escort for President of Navaho Code Talkers Association

T F Green Airport

Warwick, RI.

THU, OCT 25th, 1630hrs

 

Patriot Guard and associates,

We are very excited to have been asked to provide an escort to Mr. Peter MacDonald who is the President of the Navaho Code Talkers Association.  The escort will go from TF Green Airport in RI to Foxwoods where Mr. MacDonald will be speaking on Saturday.

Peter MacDonald (born 1928) is a Native American and the only four- term Chairman of the Navajo Tribe. MacDonald was born in Arizona and served the U.S. Marine Corps in World War II as a Navajo Code Talker. Raised among traditional sheepherders and groomed as a medicine man, MacDonald entered the Marine Corps as a Navajo language code talker during World War II. The war ended soon after his training was complete and he was deployed in post-war China to guard surrendered Japanese officers

About Code Talkers:

They were a small band of warriors who created an unbreakable code from the ancient language of their people and changed the course of modern history. Known as Navajo Code Talkers, they were young Navajo men who transmitted secret communications on the battlefields of WWII. At a time when America’s best cryptographers were falling short, these modest sheepherders and farmers were able to fashion the most ingenious and successful code in military history. They drew upon their proud warrior tradition to brave the dense jungles of Guadalcanal and the exposed beachheads of Iwo Jima. Serving with distinction in every major engagement of the Pacific theater from 1942-1945, their unbreakable code played a pivotal role in saving countless lives and hastening the war’s end.

 We have the approval from RI PGR to provide this escort and Sr. RC Jack Casey will be RCIC.
