Two years ago, Marine corporal Dakota Meyer charged five times into heavy enemy fire in Taliban-held areas in Afghanistan to aid fellow U.S. service members.
On Wednesday, when Meyer had a beer with President Obama, things got ugly for another reason.
Obama will award Meyer, 23, the Medal of Honor on Thursday, the highest award given to members of the armed services. He’s just the third living veteran to receive the award for service in Afghanistan or Iraq and the first living Marine to be honored since 1973.
