Former Indiana Senator Richard Lugar is receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom today.  

He's one of several people to be honored at the White House, including former President Bill Clinton and baseball legend Ernie Banks.  

In a statement, President Obama called Lugar an "internationally respected statesman, best known for his bi-partisan leadership and decades-long commitment to reducing the threat of nuclear weapons."
