Obama OKs Medal of Honor for living Marine
from Military Times
A Marine who repeatedly braved enemy fire in eastern Afghanistan attempting to find and save fellow members of his embedded training team will receive the Medal of Honor, Marine Corps Times has confirmed. Dakota Meyer was contacted by President Obama, according to sources with knowledge of the award. He will be the first living Marine recipient of the nation's highest award for valor since now-retired Sgt. Maj. Allan Kellogg received the medal for actions 41 years ago in Vietnam.
