Here, we have our first message board dedicated to Americans of Basque origin.
At the moment, I am researching the participation of Basque-Americans in WWII and The Korean War. In particular, I am interested in the so-called Basque code-talkers or the use of the Basque language in intelligence/communication services (Signal Corps Unit, since 1942, in San Diego or San Francisco communication centers during the Pacific Campaign).
Also, I am interested in contacting WWII or The Korean War veterans or
relatives, which could have been involved in the aforementioned service.
I would appreciate if you could help me in the research -- through the publication of this notice in your website and/or newsletter, if possible
