Summary:
True Whispers: The Story of the Navajo Code Talkers
From 1942-1945, the Navajo Code Talkers devised an unbreakable code in their native language and transmitted vital messages in the midst of combat against the Japanese. This program explores the personal and heartfelt stories of the young men recruited from harsh government boarding schools into the Marines during World War II.

Fly Girls
At the height of WWII, more than a thousand women left their homes and jobs for the opportunity of a lifetime -- joining the Women's Airforce Service Pilots. Drawing on archival footage, rarely seen home movies, and interviews with the pilots themselves, the women of the WASP tell their story of skill, determination, and courage.

Most Honorable Son
After the Pearl Harbor attack, Ben Kuroki volunteered for the U.S. Army Air Corps. He would become the first Japanese-American war hero, surviving 58 missions as an aerial gunner, but between tours of duty he found himself a lone spokesman against the racism faced by the thousands of Japanese Americans.

Citizen Tanouye
Eight students from Torrance, California, bring history to life as they research Technical Sergeant Ted Tanouye. A graduate of their school, posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his service, Citizen Tanouye helps the students discover the impact WWII had on their city and draws attention to the civil rights abuses of WWII-era America.

Special DVD features include downloadable materials for educators for Fly Girls; the movie trailer and bonus footage from Citizen Tanouye, featuring the Medal of Honor Ceremony and the dedication of the Ted Tanouye Memorial; access the the American Experience Web site; scene selection; and closed captions.
