Code Talker Vet Center and Museum

August 6, 2009

The New York Times carried the Associated Press story of how Chevron Mining donated land northwest of Gallup, New Mexico, for a museum and veteran center to preserve the legacy of the Code Talkers during World War II. According to Dorothy Kosich’s article on the Mineweb website, “Navajos, who comprise 95% of the workforce at Chevron Mining’s McKinley coal mine, convinced the company to join in the national effort to preserve the contributions of the Navajo code talkers in a museum and a veteran’s center.” The Buffalo Post article also steered me to the Navajo Code Talkers Association website. The website has a video and a book available for sale about the Code Talkers.
