Richard H. Bonham
 
Marine cipher specialist and radio operator with the World War II Navajo Code Talkers. Bonham, a non-Navajo Marine Sergeant, was also assigned to protect codetalker Native American Bill Toledo if he were mistaken for a Japanese soldier. The Navajo Code Talkers played decisive roles in the Pacific Theater at a time when the Japanese possessed the ability to break almost any American military code. The Navajo Code Talkers created messages by first translating Navajo words into English, then using the first letter of each English word to decipher the meaning. Because different Navajo words might be translated into different English words for the same letter, the code was especially difficult to decipher.
 
Please note that while we have reason to be confident that the signature is genuine by virtue of its source, it has not undergone any expert examination or verification. Accordingly, TomFolio does not guarantee the authenticity, nor can a comparison of a signature with this example exclude the possibility of an autopen, a printed facsimile, or a reasonably capable forgery.
