World War II has been over for more than 65 years, and the outcome of that war has largely been credited to the work of the original 29 Navajo code talkers. Today, the last survivor, Chester Nez walked on according to family members speaking to KOAT.com. He was 93.
For more than a decade the Navajo veteran had been devoted to educating people about the work that the code talkers did. Even into his 90s, Nez, who signed his name Cpl. Chester Nez, could be seen wearing his code talker uniform at public appearances while sharing the proud history with youth at colleges and schools across the country.
