H/T Godfather Politics.

R.I.P. Corporal Alfred K. Newman July 21, 1924 – January 13, 2019.

Alfred K. Newman, one of the last surviving Navajo Code Talkers, died at a New Mexico nursing home at the age of 94.

He was one of the last remaining Navajo Code Talkers, who relayed messages that could never be decoded by our enemies in World War II. He was among hundreds of Navajos who served in the Marine Corps, using a code based on their native language to outsmart the Japanese.

Navajo Code Talker’s death dwindles number of living World War II heroes to just eight

Alfred K. Newman, one of the last of the Navajo Code Talkers, has died in New Mexico at age 94.

Newman was among 400 Navajos who helped defeat the Japanese during World War II by developing an unbreakable code for military transmissions using the Dine language. The Code Talkers have been celebrated in books, movies and poems for their vital role in the war, their courage in combat and the unusual encryption system that stymied enemy intelligence.

Newman served in the Pacific Islands with the U.S. Marine Corps, and was honored at the White House in 2017 by President Donald Trump.

Newman’s death was first reported by KAFF News, a northern Arizona radio station, and was announced on a code talker Facebook page.

Zonnie Gormajn, a code talker daughter and historian, confirmed the death. More

It’s so sad to be losing all these men that really understood what America truly meant. I really wish people today had that same level of love for our country as they did. They understood what was at stake.

Our deepest sympathy goes out to the family of Alfred K. Newman a real-life American hero.
