    Gilbert Horn Sr., a WWII Code Talker with the U.S. Army in the Pacific Theater, passed away Sunday, 27 March at the age of 92.

    Even though his tribal ancestry was Assiniboine, his dialect was close enough to Navajo to be able to communicate with the other Code Talkers while he was attached to "Merril's Marauders".

    He is one of the last WWII Code Talkers.

    Decorated World War II hero, code talker Gilbert Horn Sr. dies

    Day is done, gone the sun
    From the lakes, from the hills, from the sky
    All is well, safely rest
    God is nigh.
