The Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civil award, is given to recognize achievement in public service, science and education, entertainment, the arts, athletics, business, or other fields. President Bush made brief remarks. He then presented the medals while a military aide read the citations. Medals were awarded to Arnold Palmer, Edward Brooke, Doris Day, Vartan Gregorian, Gilbert Grosvenor, Gordon B. Hinckley, Estee Lauder, Rita Moreno, Arnall Patz, Norman Podhoretz, and Walter Wriston. Pope John Paul II was given a medal earlier that month, and Robert L. Bartley received his in December of 2003. Family members or others represented some recipients at the ceremony. close
