We’ve sadly lost yet another Code Talker. Edmond A. Harjo was the last surving Code Talker for the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma. Back in November of 2013, 33 tribes were honored in a ceremony in Washington, D.C. with the Congressional Gold Medal for their contribution in the war, Harjo was the only living Code Talker to attend.You can read more about PFC.
