Imagine being denied any communication with the outside world.
Many Chamorros couldn’t.
So when the Japanese demanded that all radios be turned in, not everyone complied.
Residents like Frank Perez instead hid their sets.
Once a week, Perez would tune in his Philco radio to KGEI in San Francisco to pick up the latest news about the war.
Elsewhere, Joe Gutierrez shuttled his Silvertone set from one hiding place to the next…
…often running long extension cords into the jungle where his friends would gather after dark to listen.
Agueda Johnston — a local school principal — would then secretly spread the news scribbled on the inside of soap wrappers.
When locating parts for the forbidden radios became a problem, an underground supply network emerged on the island.
Somehow Gutierrez managed to stay one step ahead of the police. Perez wasn’t so lucky. An informer turned him in and he was brutally beaten.
The risks were enormous — but the hunger for news was even stronger.
Everyone wanted to know when the Americans were returning.
NAVAJO CODE TALKERS:
The U.S. Marine Corps needed an unbreakable code, so they turned to the Navajos.
The Navajo language was ideal because it was extremely complex — and it had something else.
So the Navajo soldiers created an alphabet.
The Code Talkers were critical on the frontlines, especially on Iwo Jima…
…where six Navajos transmitted coded messages around the clock while under intense fire.
Major Howard Conner declared: “Were it not for the Navajos, the Marines would never have taken Iwo Jima.”
The Japanese never did crack the code.
