Corp Frank Toledo
Birth: Oct. 10, 1924
Death: Aug. 14, 1970



Private First Class Frank Toledo attached to a Marine Artillery Regiment in the South Pacific, played an important part in maintaining communications during the Peleliu campaign.

The picture on this memorial shows Frank Toledo & his cousin Preston Toledo at Ballarat, Australia. (July 7, 1943).

From 1942 until 1945, Navajo code talkers participated in numerous battles in the Pacific, including Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima, Peleliu, and Tarawa. They not only worked in communications but also as regular soldiers, facing the same horrors of war as other soldiers At the exposed beachheads of Iwo Jima, six Navajo Code Talkers worked nonstop to send over 800 messages without any errors.

Their service in WWII was kept "confidential" until 1968 when the Defense Dept. released the files about the CODE TALKERS.
