Guest Book Highlights

May 23, 2015 "My Dear Sgt. Nez: I had the great honor of meeting you in old town Albuquerque in 2006. Thank you and all your fellow code breakers from the bottom of my heart for being part of retaining our country's freedom for us as well as all other marines and all branches of service. The code breakers participation in WWII, however, shows the great willingness that the Navajo had to help our country (your country) retain our freedom!

Larry and Loretta Saine"
