Code Talker

A native to the land,
a reflection of freedom,
a beacon of liberty,
symbol of Navajo pride.

A select few,
who roamed the valleys,
armed by dialect,
securing a regimental voice.

Traveled to Guadalcanal and Tarawa,
Landed in Peleliu and Iwo Jima,
the Navajo code talkers, a branded Marine,
the assaults they honorably conducted.

Of the Anasazi people, the Navajo,
holders of ancient ruins,
a monument of tranquil formations,
their majestic red sandstone walls.

A people of Canyon de Chelly,
within a land of great contrasts,
a symbol of freedom arises,
decending from the invisible, Code Talkers.
