Medal of Honor Award Ceremony

President Obama will award the Medal of Honor on Sept. 15 to a Marine who repeatedly braved enemy fire in Afghanistan attempting to find and save fellow service members. Dakota Meyer, 23, will be the third living recipient — and first living Marine recipient — of the nation’s highest combat honor for actions in the Iraq and Afghanistan. No living Marine has received the award in the last 38 years.
