Astronaut Among Presidential Medal Of Freedom Winners

Astronaut Sally Ride has served as a role model for young women as the first American woman in space. It's for that reason she's one of the 16 people named as recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Ride will receive the award posthumously — she died last year at the age of 61.
