The Medal of Freedom is our country’s highest honor given to civilians.
Truly moving when you know that most presidents and vice-presidents don’t end their runs this close.
I really encourage to you watch the entire video. We don’t get to enjoy the upside of politics very often, it seems. And I find this truly uplifting to celebrate a long, outstanding life in service to our country.
