Three Iowa judges are among this year's recipients of the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award.

The honorees — former members of Iowa's Supreme Court — were ousted after they voted to strike down a ban on same-sex marriage.

U.S. Ambassador to Syria Robert Ford was also honored.

This program aired on May 8, 2012.
