Cardinals' legend Stan Musial is in Washington D.C. today joining the likes of Maya Angelou, Warren Buffet, Bill Russell, George H.W. Bush and ten other artists, athletes, statesmen and business leaders to accept the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Musial was named a recipient last November of America's highest civilian honor, recognizing "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."

In singling out Musial, President Barack Obama noted that the 90-year-old former Cardinal was elected to an incredible 24 All-Star Games, earned the National League MVP three times and helped the Redbirds win three world championships.
