NAVAJO CODE TALKERS: SILAH SUN'NA

By Chester Clah, Army

Writing Type: Poem

Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Saipan and lwo Jima.
As young men, you were called upon
By a nation
That needed your help in desperation.
You all left your reservation
To bear arms against an Asian nation.
Most of you never left your land,
Let alone fight an enemy you didn't understand.
Your weapon was your native tongue,
Sending messages that left your enemy stunned.
You were known as the Marine Code Talkers
Who puzzled the enemy on their radio squawkers.
Bougainville, Solomons, Guam and Okinawa.
You saved countless equipment and lives,
And you were overlooked when heroes were recognized.
Only your natural warrior instincts
Helped you survive overwhelming defeats.
A lot of you never returned home.
Some spirits are still roaming all alone.
You are warriors who dared,
And you did your job because you all cared.
You deserve every warrior's admiration
For a job well done for our great nation.
You are the Navajo Code Talkers
Who defeated the enemy with your radio squawkers.
Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Saipan and Iwo Jima.
