Medal winner besmirched


I am amazed that the Dec. 15 story “Marines exaggerated medal winner’s actions” would be used by a correspondent not just to say what he may believe, but in the process bring doubt on this brave, heroic Marine’s actions. It was not enough to just write this story, but was it necessary to show a picture of this Marine? Was it not enough to cast doubts on his acts? This correspondent has besmirched the reputation of this young man. People who read this article will have doubts about the validity of the award of his Medal of Honor.

How do we really know that anything this correspondent reports is factual?

This story was an unnecessary and provided no valuable information.

To Cpl. Dakota Meyers, I say “Semper Fi!”
