On Monday of last week, I had the privilege of supplying my TBX, a
W.W.II radio to The History Channel for a documentary that was filmed on
the Navajo Code Talkers. The TBX radio was the type of radio that was
used in the Pacific Theater by the Code Talkers. I went up to Window
Rock, AZ on the Navajo Reservation for the shoot. This show on THC will
come out next month when the Disney movie titled "Wind Talkers" with
Nicholas Cage is released.

Here is an article from The Navajo Nation Times about the Code Talkers
and the use of my radio, etc.

It was neat meeting these guys and spending time speaking with them as I
was on the set for the entire shoot. These guys all in their 80's are
living legends and it is neat that they are being recognized now rather
than after they are gone as is usually the case. They all got a big kick
out of seeing the TBX and of course it brought back memories and stories
as you will see in the article.
