World War II Code Talkers inducted into Albuquerque Wall of Fame

News

Code Talkers from World War II were inducted into Albuquerque’s Wall of Fame Friday.

The heroes used their native language to transmit secret codes. It was a code that proved unbreakable.

They were recognized Friday for their excellence on the battlefront that led to the allies’ victories.

“Being able to keep messages secret and concise made the difference between winning or losing a battle which affected how many lives were saved or lost,” says granddaughter of Code Talker Joe Vandever Sr.

This is the sixth induction ceremony since the Wall of Fame was created in 2013.
