Bob Dylan To Get Medal

No he’s not going Metal, but he is getting an actual medal. The Presidential Medal of Freedom to be exact. He is among 13 recipients to get this award in the spring of this year at the White House.

The award is the nations highest civilian honor to individuals who “have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.”

President Obama stated in a press release

“These extraordinary honorees come from different backgrounds and different walks of life, but each of them has made a lasting contribution to the life of our Nation They’ve challenged us, they’ve inspired us, and they’ve made the world a better place. I look forward to recognizing them with this award.”
