President Barack Obama will honor recipients of the 2010 Medal of Freedom in a ceremony at the White House to be held at 1:30 P.M. (ET) on Tuesday, February 15th. The honorees include St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Famer Stan Musial.
The Medal of Freedom, America’s highest civilian honor, is awarded to individuals who make an especially meritorious contribution to the security or national interests of the United States, world peace, cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.
In great news for everyone unable to attend in person (like all of us!), the event will be live streamed at www.WhiteHouse.gov/Live. Mark it on your calendar.
All fifteen recipients of the 2010 Medal of Freedom were announced in November. The full list can be found here.
