NEW YORK, N.Y. (WHAS11) – Dakota Meyer, a recent recipient of the Medal of Honor, rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange on Monday. While standing at the podium, Meyer received a hearty round of applause from everyone on the floor.

A Green County, Kentucky native, Meyer was given the Medal of Honor last week by President Barack Obama for saving the lives of 36 people and safely retrieving the bodies of four fallen comrades.
