In Honor of U.S. Marine Corps Sergeant Dakota Meyer (Ret.) for his remarkable heroic efforts in Afghanistan on September 8, 2009 ... earning him America's greatest military recognition on September 15, 2011 ... the Medal of Honor. Semper Fi Dakota!
Hero Of The Corps
He joined out of high school to be one of the proud few and to make a difference too!
And when unforgiving harm's way reached out to snare his fellow Marines and Afghan troops that fateful day, this brave young man of 21 came to their rescue repeatedly under ungodly enemy fire, even when wounded... willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to leave no man behind... including those who were sadly among the brotherhood of the blessed fallen...
NEVER thinking anything more than it was his duty to do so, Dakota Meyer's valiant efforts going well above and beyond the call of duty... saved 36 lives, including 13 of his Marines, while delivering fatal justice in return!
Dakota's unwavering bravery rightfully earned him the Medal of Honor... and his fellow Americans' eternal gratitude and praise.
He is . . . a great hero of the Corps!
Note... Marines, Staff Sergeant Juan Rodriguez-Chaves and Capt. Adeomola Fabayo, received the Navy Cross (second only to the Medal of Honor) for their actions on this day... see the video report about them
