Watch Medal Of Honor Recipient Dakota Meyer Teach You How To Defend Your Home With A Shotgun

Community

A new video released by weapons accessories company Surefire shows legendary Marine and Medal of Honor recipient Dakota demonstrate how to clear a house with a tactical shotgun outfitted with a Surefire light.


Meyer was awarded the Medal of Honor in 2011, becoming the first living Marine from the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan to receive the nation’s highest honor for gallantry in combat.

During a 2009 ambush near the eastern Afghanistan village of Ganjgal, Meyer risked great personal harm to evacuate the bodies of several fallen coalition and Afghan soldiers. He’s one of the biggest badasses in modern military history and obviously knows his way around a weapon.

Take this video for what it’s worth, as it’s clearly an ad, and Meyer isn’t much of an actor.

But it’s not everyday you get to see a Medal of Honor recipient clear a house with a tactical shotgun.

The former Navy SEAL among a group of eight men arrested earlier this week in Port-au-Prince on weapons charges says he was providing security work "for people who are directly connected to the current President" of Haiti.

"We were being used as pawns in a public fight between him and the current Prime Minister of Haiti," said Chris Osman, 44, in a post on Instagram Friday. "We were not released we were in fact rescued."

It's a photo for the ages: a Marine NCO, a Greek god in his dress blues, catches the eye of a lovely young woman as her boyfriend urges her on in distress. It's the photographic ancestor of the much-loved "distracted boyfriend" stock photo meme, made even sweeter by the fact that this is clearly a sailor about to lose his girl to a Devil Dog.

Well, this photo and the Marine in it, which hopscotched around Marine Corps Facebook and Instagram pages before skyrocketing to the front page of Reddit on Thursday, are very real.

The photo shows then-Staff Sgt. Louis A. Capozzoli — and he is absolutely not on his way to steal your girl.
