|The Presidential Medal of Freedom, given by the President of the United States, is one of the highest civilian awards in the US. |
In August of 2009, U.S. President Barack Obama presented Presidential Medals of Freedom to 16 individuals who he called "agents of change"...blazing trails and braking down barriers, discovering new theories, launching new initiatives, and opening minds to new possibilities.
The recipient in the photo is Dr. Joseph Medicine Crow, the last living Plains Indian war chief, a 95-year-old Crow Indian who went into battle wearing war paint under his World War II uniform.
Most of these folks, or their works, are very well know by all. Do YOU know who they are?
