Dakota Meyer allows one last interview before ceremony
'Do your best every day, give 100 percent every day and never stop.' -DAKOTA MEYER
As this is posted,
A Unifying Quiet has begun to settle over in Columbia/Adair County
By Natasha Rosenstock
This is an Exclusive Interview for.ColumbiaMagazine.com as Dakota Meyer is not giving any other interviews this week.The only condition of the interview was that I ask him questions pertaining to today and the future, rather than from the past. -NATASHA
Q: How can Adair Countians best honor you, but give you your privacy?
A: "I'm not about getting honored. They don't have to treat me different than any one else. My privacy is the same as everyone else."Q: What would you say to young people in Adair County who might want to join the Marines?
A: "It's a great opportunity. It got me to where I'm at and set me up for success for the rest of my life."Q: What should young people do in school to prepare them for success in the Marines?
A: "Just what you need to do in any situation. Do your best every day, give 100 percent every day and never stop."Q: How has growing up in a rural area like Columbia influenced your values?
A: "Everyone knows where I'm from. In Columbia, KY everybody knows and takes care of one another. They've taken care of me and stood behind me since I came back."That being said, Dakota Meyer does not know where he's going to be living in the near-future. But we can be sure he'll carry his tenacity and perseverance with him wherever he goes. -NATASHA ROSENSTOCK for ColumbiaMagazine.com
