Trail's End

Amongst the 1000 or so WWII Vets who pass away each day, some are noteworthy in their uniqueness. From the Aug. 1 issue of Time:

DIED. CHARLES CHIBITTY, 83, last survivor of the Comanche code talkers who sent messages for the Allies during World War II; in Tulsa, Okla. "It's strange," said the war vet in 2002. "Growing up as a child I was forbidden to speak my native language at school. Later [it] helped win the war, and that makes me very proud."

Godspeed, Charles.
