U.S. President Barack Obama (L) struggles to present the Medal of Freedom to Dr. Joseph Medicine Crow - High Bird (R) during a ceremony at the White House August 12, 2009 in Washington, DC. The Medal of Freedom is the highest civilian award in the United States. Dr. Joseph Medicine Crow - High Bird was presented the medal for his valiant service in World War II where he was awarded the status of Crow War Chief, and his renowned studies of the First Americans and contributions to cultural and historical preservation have been critical to our understanding of America's history.
