The Medal of Honor is worn by former Marine Cpl. Dakota Meyer, 23, from Greensburg, Ky, after it was awarded to him by President Baraack Obama, Thursday, Sept. 15, 2011, during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House in Washington. Meyer was in Afghanistan's Kunar province in Sept. 2009 when he repeatedly ran through enemy fire to recover the bodies of fellow American troops. He is the first living Marine to be awarded the Medal of Honor for actions in Iraq or Afghanistan. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak) less
