Email

Cpl. Dakota Meyer was awarded the Medal of Honor at the White House on Sept. 15. He is the first living Marine to receive the Medal of Honor since 1973. In 2009 at the age of 21, both American and Afghan troops were trapped under heavy fire while in Ganjgal to negotiate with village elders. Five times he entered into the kill zone with his Humvee. Repeatedly he jumped off the truck to drag wounded Afghan soldiers inside and look for his four fellow Marines.
