Code Talker’s Birthday Wish For Veterans’ Day

Navajo Code Talker Celebrates 94th Birthday Veterans’ Day.

Alysa Landry of Indian Country Today Media Network details the story of Dan Akee’s wish to have his 1950’s home renovated so he can once again return to the home he originally built. His daughter, Marmelita, said, “All he wanted to do before he dies is live in that house.” Donations have been pouring in to help volunteers make Akee’s wish come true.
