STURGIS, S.D. -- The last of the American Indian code talkers of South
Dakota who served during World War II has been laid to rest.


Clarence Wolf Guts of Wanblee was buried Tuesday in Black Hills National
Cemetery near Sturgis. The 86-year-old Wolf Guts died June 16 at the
South Dakota Veterans Home in Hot Springs.


Wolf Guts was one of 11 Lakota, Nakota and Dakota code talkers from
South Dakota. During the war, they transmitted messages from an Army
general to his chief of staff in the field using their native language,
which the Germans and the Japanese could not translate.


People came from around the country to pay their respects at his
funeral. Gov. Mike Rounds asked that flags be flown at half staff in
Wolf Guts' honor.

So, the naming of Am-Indians system is based on the first thing the child looks at as they're being born....What if the kid looked at his grandparents bangin... Clarence Wrinkly Labia Slappin Sctrotum.
