    Dakota Meyer, 23, drops off hundreds of pounds of concrete that will be used to backfill around a pond in Greensburg, Ky., Aug. 2. Meyer says he is happy pouring concrete because it is similar to his previous job as an infantryman in the Marine Corps. Meyer will be receiving the Medal of Honor, the nation's highest award for valor, from President Barack Obama in Washington, Sept. 15, making him the first living Marine recipient since the Vietnam War. Meyer was assigned to Embedded Training Team 2-8 advising the Afghan National Army in the eastern provinces bordering Pakistan. He will be awarded for heroic actions in Ganjgal, Afghanistan, Sept. 8, 2009.
