    Code Talker passes on

    Honor the Fallen
    Yesterday (Sep 5, 2016), one of the last remaining Navajo Code Talkers passed away at 95 years old.
    Joe Hosteen Kellwood, seen here singing the Marines' Hymn in Navajo, served in the 1st Marine Division during WWII and saw battle on Cape Gloucester, Peleliu, and Okinawa.
    Semper Fidelis, Marine.

    Navajo Code Talker, Sergeant Major Dan Akee, dies

    TUBA CITY, Ariz. (KSAZ) - Sergeant Major Dan Akee, one of the last Navajo Code Talkers, has died.

    Sergeant Major Akee was born in 1922 and resided in Tuba City where he died on Friday morning, according to his granddaughter.

    Akee saw action during World War II as a U.S. Marine on four Pacific Islands, including Iwo Jima.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with Sergeant Major Dan Akee's family.

    May he rest in peace.

    Semper Fi & RIP Marine....
