I can't even imagine brother. Just saying thank you us not enough. I wish you the best. Saw you on Fox News and look forward to reading your book. Stay safe.

I know we do not know each other Dakota but we are brothers and linked by our Marine Corps bond so I felt the need to reach out to you. I see the pain and hurt you were feeling at this time and I can relate...not totally of course because our experiences are totally different. But pain is pain....so even though we do not know each other I want to reach out to you brother and let you know that if you ever need a listening ear you can count on me. Semper Fidelis brother

As a Vietnam-era Marine I can try to understand, but am not sure how I would feel in your shoes. Stick with it Marine, you are an inspiration to many. S/F Paul

Story
Introduction
I am a Kentucky native, former Marine and 2011 recipient of the Medal of Honor.
 
I wear two bracelets, EVERYDAY, engraved with the names of the brothers I lost in the Battle of Ganjgal, Afghanistan, September 8, 2009 - Staff Sgt. Aaron Kenefick, "Doc" James Layton, Gunnery Sgt Edwin Johnson, Jr., 1stLt Michael Johnson and Army Sgt Kenneth Westbrook.
 
Being honored and called a hero for the worst day of my life is something I still struggle to understand, but I try my best to make something positive out of something negative.  Now I spend my days traveling the country, speaking to various groups, honoring those who gave all and trying to inspire everyone to realize their full human potential.
 
Semper Fi!
