Chester Nez served as a Navajo Code Talker in the United States Marine Corp during World War II having been one of the first initial 29 Navajo Code Talkers recruited. He is also the last surviving member of the original Code Talkers recruited in 1942. He played an integral part in the creation of the Navajo Code that would soon move into the Southern Pacific Battlefield. Having lived during a time when speaking Navajo as children was shunned, he played an important role in turning the war in favor of the United States on the battlefield.
