A U.S. Marine given the nation’s highest award for valor is suing a defense

contractor that he says ridiculed his Medal of Honor, called him mentally

unstable and suggested he had a drinking problem, thereby costing him a job.

Dakota Meyer received the Medal of Honor in September, two years after

the young corporal saved 36 lives during a six-hour ambush in Afghanistan.

He is the third living recipient of the award for actions in Iraq or Afghanistan.

After the medal was approved, President Barack Obama waited to call until

Meyer’s lunch break because the 23-year-old worried about taking a call on

the job.
