Dakota Meyer’s Story

The NRA, Brownells and Smith & Wesson are collaborating on a series of videos under the title “Patriot Profiles,” which is part of the NRA’s “Life of Duty” series. This “Patriot Profile” is on Medal of Honor winner Dakota Meyer. Meyer won his medal in Afghanistan, trying to save four Americans under attack by the Taliban, in the face of what seems like almost active interference from higher-ups. Both the story and the video are riveting. The production values are excellent. I really encourage you to watch it:

Real News on The Blaze doing a full hour interview with him... powerful stuff!!!!  At one point he decided to kill himself and pulled over to the side of the road, pulled out his Glock and put it to his head and pulled the trigger - the gun which always had a bullet in the chamber -- didn't....  at this point he turned his entire way of thinking about what he'd experienced in the war around.
