Is this sentence correct? Choose from the parenthesis: Also, should the commas be where it is?
In 1976, DiMaggio received (a/the) U.S. Medal, of freedom, from President Gerald Ford.
First, you need to use the because the U.S. Medal of Freedom is a specific thing.
You also only need a comma after 1976; none of the others are correct.
