Last of the Comanche Code Talkers

Charles Chibitty, the last of the Comanche code talkers, has died. Our direct connection to WWII fades every single day, guys. Every veteran's death diminishes our grasp on the reality of that time.

It's up to all of us to remember.

A wistful goodbye to the last of the "Wind Talkers".

The double edge of the sword, is living... but also, living long enough to have to say goodbye to so many that made history.
