Another member of the Navajo Code Talkers has passed away. Former New Mexico state Senator John Pinto served in the Marines as a code talker in World War Two. He was born in 1924 in Lupton, Arizona. In World War Two, code talkers played a valuable role to send messages and code to allied forces by using their native language. It was a code the Germans and Japanese couldn’t break. Of the 421 members of the group, only six Marines are still alive. Pinto passed away Friday morning in Gallup, New Mexico. He was 94 years old.
