I did leave this info with another poster. The Navajo Code Talkers were never recognized re their GI bills. They were used and abused by their own government. Because they lived on a Federal Reservation that was the excuse the government used so they did not have to pay out to these soldiers. Also, there were other Indians tribes that were also Code Talkers. Marcy
