Efforts Underway to Bestow Medal of Freedom on Red Skelton
Efforts are underway to have President Obama posthumously bestow the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Vincennes native and late comedian "Red" Skelton.
Skelton died in 1997.
A committee has been formed to amass testimonial letters from as many people as possible, before July 18th, 2014, that will result in the medal being bestowed on Skelton.
That effort begins on Thursday, Skelton's 100th birthday anniversary.
