Marine Corps statement on Cpl. Meyer's Medal of Honor

We are personally very disappointed in the McClatchy Newspaper’s decision to publish the article, “Marines Promoted Inflated Story for Medal of Honor Winner” alleging that the Marine Corps embellished Corporal Dakota Meyer’s story. We firmly stand behind the Medal of Honor (MOH) process and the conclusion that this Marine rightly deserved the nation’s highest military honor.
