Highest Honor: The Story of Dakota Meyer

Dakota Meyer is a country boy who grew up amongst the corn and tobacco fields in the rolling hills and lush farmland of Columbia, Kentucky. Awarded the Medal of Honor, our nation’s highest honor for courage and valor, he was thrust into the spotlight of celebrity and nothing in his world could feel less heroic or less honorable than that.

At only 21 years old, Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer had experienced combat, but nothing like on the morning of September 8, 2009. Dakota remained behind with Staff Sergeant Juan Rodriguez-Chavez while the day’s patrol traveled toward a place called Ganjgal, unaware that the Taliban and enemy insurgents awaited their arrival. They were outgunned, outnumbered, and needed help. Now.

  1. I read “In to the Fire” and Dakota’s heroism is one for the ages. He is an amazing Marine and a lot can be learned from his dedication to his craft and his team. I hope to show both episodes to my high school leadership class so they can learn from Dakota’s exploits. Nothing I can write can explain the admiration and love I have for Dakota and the Marines in Afghanistan, and all the service men and women of our military.

    • Wonderful words you gave. I hope to get this book in Poland and read it too. Regards
