In recognition of Native American Heritage Month (#NAHM), we’re revisiting the incredible story of #Navajo Code Talkers and the Unbreakable Code:

bit.ly/2f1zGRL Navajo Code Talkers
During the course of #WWII, about 400 #Navajos participated in the code talker program. The first 29 recruited arrived at Camp Elliott in May 1942. One of their first tasks was to develop a Navajo code from their native language. Code protected valuable #intelligence.
#Navajo was the perfect option as a code because it is not written and very few people, who aren’t of Navajo origin, can speak it. However, the U.S. Marines took the code to the next level and made it virtually unbreakable by further encoding the language with word substitution.

@ndrew_lawrence Oh, please—allow me.

@TuckerCarlson, diversity starts in nature. Science has proven that lack of diversity results in deformation and failure to evolve. An Olympic-sized gene pool is unquestionably better for life than a tiny, muddy puddle.

But let's move beyond science.
@ndrew_lawrence @TuckerCarlson Diversity in the workforce drives success. Why do "think-tanks" exist? Simple—to bring disparate ideas to the table, examine their merits, and promote goals which stand the best chance of being successful. People who think differently stir imagination and creativity.
@ndrew_lawrence @TuckerCarlson Want proof of that? Look at the open-source community, which has brought amazing (and often free) software to consumers. Everything from Mozilla Firefox to Wikipedia to Linux—all from open-source, and benefitting from programmers worldwide working together for a better product.
