Many Native Americans from Oklahoma were once again employed as code talkers during WWII to create a code impenetrable by enemies. Rather than Choctaw, a Comanche-language code was developed. Several of these men were sent to invade Normandy to send messages. None of the men were killed and the Comanche code was never broken.
