The National Constitution Center announced that its annual Liberty Medal will be awarded to U.S. Sen. John McCain.

McCain will be receiving this award for his lifetime of sacrifice and service. The National Constitution Center’s Liberty Medal awards men and women annually.

Senator McCain said, “It has been my greatest privilege in life to swear an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, beginning with my enlistment in the Navy and continuing through my service in the United States Senate. Each time I have raised my right hand, I do so with enormous weight of the people who elected me to serve. I’m grateful to the National Constitution Center for this recognition, and am humbled to join the ranks of so many past Liberty Medal recipients I greatly admire.”

Vice President Joe Biden, chairman of the National Constitution Center’s Board of Trustees, will award the Liberty Medal to McCain on October 16 in Philadelphia.

Biden said, “In our over two decades serving together in the United States Senate, there were few others I could count on to be as honest, respectful, and decent as John. His heroic sacrifice for his country and dedicated service to his constituents are unquestionable and unmatched. It will truly be an honor to award the Liberty Medal – my first as Chair of the National Constitution Center’s Board of Trustees – to my very good friend, John McCain.”

Other Recipients include Hillary Clinton, Malala Yousafzai and His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet.
