The promised appearance of legendary WWII Navajo Code Talkers Merril L. Sandoval and Dan Akee, a pretty princess, plus a colorful ceremony drew a large friendly crowd of students, teachers, parents and friends to a unique event last week in Tuba City, Arizona.
The American flag flying over the Tuba City School District’s Primary School survived years of sun, wind, rain, snow and occasional sandstorms here in the high desert of northern Arizona, but on Wednesday, Sept. 5th, 2001, it was ready for retirement.
