Thumbs up Medal of Honor Recipient to be Inducted into Hall of Heroes

Sgt. Dakota L. Meyer will be inducted into the Hall of Heroes on Sept. 16 at 2 p.m. EDT in the Pentagon Auditorium (Room BH650). Secretary of Defense Leon E. Panetta, Secretary of the Navy Ray E. Mabus, Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen. James F. Amos, and Sgt. Maj. of the Marine Corps Sgt. Maj. Michael P. Barrett will participate in the ceremony.

Journalists without a Pentagon building pass will need to enter the River Entrance and will require a Pentagon escort. Plan to arrive no later than 45 minutes prior to the event, have proof of affiliation and two forms of photo identification.

Following the Hall of Heroes ceremony, Meyer will be honored with an evening parade at Marine Barracks Washington at 6 p.m.
To cover either event, media representatives should RSVP with Capt. Kevin Schultz at 703-614-4309.

President Barack Obama will present the Medal of Honor to Meyer in a White House ceremony on Thursday, Sept. 15, at 2:30 p.m. in recognition of his valor during Operation Enduring Freedom. Interested media should contact White House Office of Media Affairs at 202-456-6238.
