Welcome home Marine
I wish him a long, happy and productive life. I hope he sees all his dreams come true. Semper Fi.

If we had more 22 year olds like this we wouldn’t be in the sorry shape we’re in. Awesome guy.

“Hell also be the first living Marine to receive the honor since the Vietnam War.”
About time they gave it to a Marine who was still around to savor it.
Well done, Marine!

Twenty-two years old! It just amazes me how much courage in such a young person. Good for him!
From another article
I feel the furthest thing from a hero," Meyer said in an interview with the Marine Corps Times. "I went in there to do a job and the way I viewed it is that I let those guys down."
"[T]he award would be for them and for the corps ... and for marines that didn't get recognized because there wasn't enough witnesses," Meyer added. That's what it would be for."

Seem to remember the battele. I think "Sand Rat" posted it.
Was during as Cpl Dakota stated a change in ROE's and the battle was harsh with lots of casualties, well he summarized well in the audio klink above. Semper Fi Marine, complete class, and just saddened it was such a FUBAR mission from the start.
Maybe if Obama gave more soldiers as he's hesistant in manpwer yet gives away money like it grows on trees. What an honor, a living person EARNING the MoH, God Bless him and so many blessings to all.
