(CNN)Samuel Sandoval, one of the last surviving Navajo Code Talkers who served during World War II, died Friday [July 29, 2022] according to a release from the Navajo Nation.

During the war, Sandoval was one of hundreds of young Navajo men recruited to use an 813-word code based on the native Navajo language to send and receive military communications in the South Pacific Theater.

"Navajo Code Talker Samuel Sandoval will always be remembered as a loving and courageous person who sacrificed more than we will ever know to defend our homelands using our sacred Navajo language," Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez said in a statement. "We are saddened by his passing, but his legacy will always live on in our hearts and minds. On behalf of the Navajo Nation, we offer our prayers and heartfelt condolences to his wife, Malula Sandoval, his children, and many loved ones."

Sandoval was born in 1922 in Nageezi, New Mexico, and enlisted in the Marine Corps in 1943, the Navajo Nation release said. He completed basic training at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in California, where the 29 original Code Talkers had arrived in 1942.

The original Navajo recruits were tasked with developing an unbreakable code by using words from their language and encoding it with word substitution to transmit tactical information over telephone and radio. The Navajo language was chosen as a code because it was not written and very few people who aren't of Navajo origin could speak it, according to the CIA.

The Code Talkers were used in every major operation involving the Marines in the Pacific theater, and are credited with helping the US take Iwo Jima.
Sandoval served in five combat tours, including Guadalcanal, Bougainville, Guam, Peleliu, and Okinawa, before he was honorably discharged on January 26, 1946, according to the Navajo Nation release.

He and other Navajo Code Talkers could not talk about the code for more than two decades, until the operation was declassified in 1968.

We honor you, Samuel Sandoval.

On June 19, 2010, at approximately 7:40 p.m., EMS 22 was dispatched to a vehicle that had crashed into a house. Firefighters Dylan Clark and Nathan Hyder were the first on scene, where they found a truck full into a garage, with the accelerator pushed to the floor and wheels still spinning. The patient was unconscious in the vehicle. Copious amounts of black smoke were present, as well as flying debris from the spinning tires. Visibility was almost zero. 

Firefighters Clark and Hyder immediately donned their self-contained breathing apparatus gear and entered the garage in order to reach the unconscious patient. The firefighters’ lives were in imminent danger as the vehicle could have broken loose from the framing on the garage or violently shifted. Unable to gain access from the safer rear-end of the vehicle, Clark and Hyder broke out the passenger side window with a Halligan tool, unlocked the door and reached in and turned off the ignition. The patient was moved out of the vehicle and structure after great difficulty, thereby saving her life. 

Through indomitable courage, complete disregard for his own safety, and profound concern for the unconscious patient, Firefighter Clark averted a possible loss of life and injury to others. Firefighter Clark’s extraordinary heroism, fortitude, and endurance, with grave danger to his own life above and beyond the call of duty, are in the highest traditions of the Coeur d’Alene Fire Department and Idaho fire service.

We honor you, Dylan Clark.

From 1947-1949, Air Force Day was celebrated on August 1. Although this day is no longer officially observed, we can still take time to learn some African American Air Force history.

In August of 1917 Eugene Jacques Bullard became the first African American military pilot in history and the only African American pilot in World War I. 

After completing flight training, Bullard joined the 200 other Americans in the Lafayette Flying Corps, and he flew combat missions from August 27 to November 11, 1917. He distinguished himself in aerial combat, as he had on the ground, and was officially credited with shooting down one German aircraft.

We honor you, Eugene Bullard.

From 1947-1949, Air Force Day was celebrated on August 1. Although this day is no longer officially observed, we can still take time to learn some African American Air Force history.

In August of 1917 Eugene Jacques Bullard became the first African American military pilot in history and the only African American pilot in World War I.

After completing flight training, Bullard joined the 200 other Americans in the Lafayette Flying Corps, and he flew combat missions from August 27 to November 11, 1917. He distinguished himself in aerial combat, as he had on the ground, and was officially credited with shooting down one German aircraft.

We honor you, Eugene Bullard.

Upon the fall of the Philippines in April 1942, Lieutenant Charles Benjamin Frank was captured by Japanese forces and held in a series of prisoner of war camps in the Philippines for more than two years. In December, 1944, he and 1,620 other prisoners were packed in the holds of the Japanese freighter Ōryoku Maru for further imprisonment in Japan. The ship was subsequently sunk by American planes, and the surviving prisoners were transferred to freighter Enoura Maru. This unmarked ship was also attacked by US Navy planes from the aircraft carrier Hornet as it departed Takao, Formosa. Lieutenant Frank was wounded in this attack and later transferred to the Japanese ship Brazil Maru for the final leg of his imprisonment in Moji, Japan. He was finally liberated on September 7, 1945 and remained in the Army until his retirement as a Colonel in 1967. 

We honor you, Charles Frank.

Aaron Pawol has been a 911 ground Paramedic at Mercy Flights since January of 2009. During this time, Aaron has built strong relationships with his community, peers, supervisors, and patients.

Since joining our staff, Aaron has excelled in training Paramedic interns in his role as a Field Training Officer. Aaron welcomes new employees into an environment that promotes learning and accountability. Aaron is also perceived as a mentor by his peers.

In his off time, Aaron teaches at the local Community College Paramedic Program as a Lab Instructor. Aaron is also an avid soccer and golf enthusiast.

On February 25, 2017, while off-duty and playing in a local golf tournament, Aaron noticed some commotion on the green at the next hole. Aaron heard sirens in the distance, and drove his cart up to the scene to investigate. Aaron saw that there was active CPR being performed on an individual, so he identified himself as an off-duty Paramedic and began to assist. Due to the relationship Aaron has built with local fire personnel, they asked him to stay to “run” the call, even after the arrival of the fire/rescue unit and ambulance. Aaron continued to take the lead on the cardiac arrest patient and when return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) was attained, the ambulance crew proceeded to transport the patient.

Aaron later received some follow up information from the transporting ambulance crew that the patient received intervention in the Cath Lab at a local hospital, and had survived the incident. Aaron thought that the story ended there.

Several days later, Aaron was surprised (to say the least) when the patient called his personal cell phone to say “thank you”. The patient had contacted the golf course’s pro shop and eventually tracked down Aaron to express his gratitude.

Although usually composed, the night Aaron received the phone call from the patient, he was visibly emotional. Aaron received recognition that was well deserved.

We honor you, Aaron Pawol.
