DAR meeting in Ulysses

The Byrd Prewitt Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution had its monthly meeting Saturday at the Historic Adobe Museum in Ulysses.

After the chapter business was dispensed with, Lola Caraway, regent, presented a program on the Code Talkers of World War I and World War II.

Some interesting facts about the Code Talkers:

• They were deemed so valuable that when they were off base they were assigned body guards.

• There are many documented instances when their messages were intercepted by the enemy but no documented instances where the enemy was able to break the code.

• The training they received was so extensive that even though the enemy captured other Native Americans, the soldiers not trained were not able to tell the enemy what the messages meant, even under torture.
