WWII-era Navajo Code Talker Fleming Begaye Sr. dies at 97

WWII-era Navajo Code Talker Fleming Begaye Sr. dies at 97

By: The Associated Press May 12, 2019

CHINLE, Ariz. The Navajo Nation has announced that World War II-era Navajo Code Talker Fleming Begaye Sr. has died.


Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez says Begaye died Friday in Chinle, Arizona. He was 97.


The cause of death was not disclosed.


Begaye was among hundreds of Navajos who served in the Marine Corps, using a code based on their native language to outsmart the Japanese.


According to the Navajo Nation, Begaye served as a Code Talker from 1943 to 1945 and fought in the Battle of Tarawa and the Batter of Tinian. He spent a year in a naval hospital after being wounded.


Begaye later ran a general store in Chinle.


President Donald Trump honored Begaye and two other Navajo Code Talkers at the White House in November 2017.

Semper Fi, rest in peace, Marine.
