United States Army Soldier. A World War II Code Talker, he was the last survivor of the Comanche code talkers who used their native language to transmit messages for the Allies in Europe during World War II. Like the larger group of Navajo Indians who performed a similar service in the Pacific theater, the Comanches were dubbed "code talkers." The group of Comanche Indians were selected for special duty in the U.S. Army to provide the Allies with a language that the Germans could not decipher. Chibitty was quoted in 2002 as saying, "It's strange, but growing up as a child I was forbidden to speak my native language at school. Later my country asked me to. My language helped win the war and that makes me very proud. Very proud. I wonder what the hell Hitler thought when he heard those strange voices". In 1999, Chibitty received the Knowlton Award, which recognizes individuals for outstanding intelligence work, during a ceremony at the Pentagon's Hall of Heroes. (bio by: Ron Moody)
