Video: Code Talker Joe Kellwood Sings the Marine Corps Hymn in Navajo
Today the U.S. Marine Corps turns 237. Founded in 1775, the Corps existed before the United States of America. At a recent ceremony at the Heard Museum in Phoenix, Navajo Code Talker Joe Kellwood sang the Marine Corps Hymn in Navajo. For all the Native Americans who have served and do serve in the Corps, especially the heroic Navajo Code Talkers, this is a beautiful performance. Kellwood saw action in the Pacific during World War II in the battles of Cape Gloucester, Peleliu and Okinawa. Today we honor veterans like Code Talker Joe Kellwood and the U.S. Marine Corps.
