The award is the country's highest civilian honor.    AFP PHOTO/Mandel NGAN        (Photo credit should read MANDEL NGAN/AFP/GettyImages)

And he wore his sunglasses through the whole ceremony.  Below is video of the official presentation – "Maggie's Farm" enthusiast (and President) Barack Obama looks particularly amused – and here is a bonus GIF of Dylan just hanging at the White House.  He looks impressed.  Anyway, congrats, Bob!
