Author Judith Avila:
Chester Nez: World War II Navajo Code Talker

In November 2014, the Octavia Fellin Library presented author Judith Avila, who wrote Chester Nez’s compelling memoir about being a part of the original 29 Code Talkers. The Navajo Code Talkers served in the Marines during World War II. These men participated with the only unbroken code in modern warfare and used it in battle against the Japanese.  Mr. Nez was one of the original 29 Code Talkers, and he was the last to pass away earlier this year.
