On Veteran"s Day, November 11, the Navajo Code Talkers will be presented on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange to participate in New York City"s Veteran"s Day observances.
The Navajo Code Talkers are the invited guests of NativeOne Financial, a Native American Financial Service Co., in partnership with Raymond C. Forbes & Co., Inc., a member of the NYSE, ARCA, AMEX, FINRA, ISE, NASDAQ, and SIPC.
The Navajo Code Talkers were young Navajo men, numbering nearly 400, who created an unbreakable code from the ancient language of their people and transmitted secret communications during WWII, changing the course of modern history.
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.
The Navajo Code Talkers 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 are humbled to host the Navajo Code Talkers at the NYSE, the symbol of financial freedom that they helped protect and preserve," said Donald Lyons, CEO and Founder of NativeOne Financial and a member of the California-based Morongo Band of Mission Indians.
After participating in the New York City Veteran"s Day Parade, NativeOne Financial/Raymond C. Forbes & Co., Inc. will host the Code Talkers at a reception at the Cornell Club, 6 East 44th Street from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm.
The Code Talkers will be available to sign copies of Navajo Weapon, by Sally McLain, a gripping
account of Navajo Tribal men who . . . created the only unbreakable code in modern military history.
Donations to the Navajo Code Talkers Museum (www.navajocodetalkers.org) will be accepted.
Additionally, you can visit our website for more details regarding the Museum they are creating.
