Alfred K. Newman, one of the last remaining members of the Navajo Code Talkers, has died at 94. As a code talker, Newman was one of a group of Navajos who learned a secret, unbreakable language that was used to send information on tactics, troop movements and orders over the radio and telephone during WWII. It was a key factor in American military victories in Japan. Today, Navajo leaders say there are fewer than a dozen code talkers still alive, but because the program was classified for so many years after the war, an exact tally is unknown.
