7. All 13 are to receive the medal.

The list includes:

* Shimon Peres
* John Paul Stevens
* John Glenn
* Gordon Hirabayashi
* Dolores Heurta, civil rights activist for Mexican migrant workers
* John Doar, civil rights attorney who prosecuted the Watergate scandal
* William Foege, a physician and epidemiologist who helped eradicate smallpox
* Jan Karski, leader in the Polish Underground in WWII (died in 2000)
* Pat Summitt, all-time winningest college basketball coach (not just coach of women's teams -- of all teams!)
and my favorite,
* Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the iconic Girl Scouts group, which in its century-long existence has grown into the largest educational organization for girls and has had over 50 million members. She died in 1927.
