The Comanche Nation

Nʉmʉrekwa’etʉʉ — “Comanche speakers” During World Wars I and II, the United States military used select Native American service men to relay secret battle messages based on words from their traditional tribal languages. “Code Talkers,” as they came to be known, are twentieth–century heroes.

Several Comanche Code Talkers were wounded in battle but all survived the war. These valiant soldiers are credited with saving the lives of thousands of American and Allied service men. All the Comanche Code Talkers have now passed away but their heroic actions will forever be remembered by a grateful Nation.
