                                  VETERAN OF THE WEEK

                                  This week we honor  Marine Corps Veteran George B. Willie Sr.

                                  George enlisted with the U.S. Marine Corps as a 17-year-old in 1943. Like many of his Navajo Code Talker comrades he lied to recruiters, claiming he was 20-years-old, while attending a school at Fort Wingate.
