The story of how her ex-husband received the nation’s highest military award, medal of honor
Born and raised in a small town in Columbia, Kentucky, her ex-husband Dakota Meyer lived on a farm with his father and graduated from Green County High School.
Meyer never thought about going to Marine Corps. He took the military as a consideration.
But when the marine recruiter while in high school told him he would not make it to the Marine Corps, the very same day, he signed up.
He said it was a challenge for him. Once he signed up, he went to Paris Island and went to Camp Geiger, North Carolina, to do military training.
After the training, he was stationed in Hawaii for the next four years.
His first deployment was in July 2007 in Iraq for 45 to 60 days, but he was sent home early after he got bit by a spider and lost a lot of nerves.
He also had two surgeries in Iraq. He came back to Germany for a while and then went home to rehab his hand.
He trained for another couple of years, took over a sniper team, and became a sniper team leader.
In 2009, the gunnery sergeant said they needed five volunteers to go to Afghanistan, so he raised his hand and got selected.
He left for Afghanistan in July. At the time, he was with the fourth Marine division. They were in Kunar province, a place in Northern Afghanistan.
They lived on a base of four U.S. and 80 Afghans in their small little base, and their job was to advise and help train and transition them to be able to take over their country.
According to Meyer, everything started getting bad from the 6th of September. They took 12 to 14 107 rockets directly to their base.
One of the guys he had with him had his leg cut off from the rocket hit. Everything just went downhill.
After the fight that lasted for a while was over, they went back and discussed it. They were told that they were going to run a mission.
At first, they were told they were going to run on Monday but later changed the plan.
They were told they were going to run on Tuesday, 8th September, so they went down the next day and got briefed at night on what the mission was.
He said he was not happy and wasn’t comfortable with it because he saw flaws. When he brought the topic up, it wasn’t heard.
They left for a mission at 3 or 3:30 in the morning and started patrolling the village.
He could see the people going up in the mountains through the thermals and called it out over the radio. He was again told to get off the radio.
They were thrown a whole Kabang that kept coming continuously, so he requested permission to go in, and each time they were forbidden.
They finally said they were going, which took three to four trips to get in. When they got in, there were people everywhere, all wounded.
Then for four to six hours, he kept on searching for his teammates but couldn’t find them. They were all set up.
It was an ambush with an estimated 100 to 150 enemy fighters right above them.
One of the four Marines, Lieutenant Michael Johnson, who was trapped inside the village, came over the radio calling in a support artillery mission.
Still, the commanders in operations denied saying its’ too close to the village.
The last word he heard from him was he was going to die if not given those rounds. Meyer knew the severity of the situation at that point in time.
For the next six hours, they were pulling out bodies, trying to save them.
He and Rodriguez Chavez would drive the dead and wounded out of the valley and come back, come and run the gauntlet of fire again and again.
The only objective he had during his several trips was to find his teammates and get them alive.
On their first trip, he was able to pull out the bunch of Afghans and take them out.
He was still getting shoot at as he was leaving with his teammates' bodies out of that valley. The table never turned.
There was too much gunfire, so he took off running. As he was running, he jumped into the trench and landed on Gunnery Sergeant Johnson.
He was dead. In fact, all were dead.
At first, lieutenant Michael Johnson then Sergeant Edwin Johnson, Sergeant Aaron Kenefick, and corpsman James doc Layton, respectively.
During an interview, Meyer said he didn’t kill enough and didn’t save enough because if he had killed enough, the war would have been over, and if he had saved enough, then none of his teammates would have died.
He added that if they had bought them alive, then it would have been extraordinary.
Meyer received the nation’s highest military award, the Medal of Honor, on the 15th of September, 2011.
Former president Barack Obama awarded him the medal of honor.
Her net worth is under review. As of now, we have the net worth of her ex-husband, for which she is famous.
The estimated net worth of Dakota Meyer is $500 thousand.
- She was born on the 5th of August, 1986. She is currently 36 years old.
