Who during World War II save many Marine lives.

Code talkers in the 20th century used obscure languages as a means of secret communications during wartime. The term is now usually associated with the United States Marines during the world wars who use their knowledge of the Navajo American languages as a base to transmit coded messages. In particular, there were approximately 400 to 500 Navajo Americans in the United States Marine Corps whose primary job was the transmission of the secret tactical messages. Code talkers transmitted these messages over military telephones or radio communication nets using formal or informal developed codes built upon their native languages. Their service improves the speed of the encryption of communications at both ends and frontline operations during World War II. The name code talkers is strongly associated with bilingual Navajo speakers specially recruited during World War II by the Marines to serve in their standard communications units in the Pacific theater.
