One of the country’s bravest hopes to become one of New York City’s bravest.

Sgt. Dakota Meyer, the Marine who received the Medal of Honor this month for personally rescuing 36 soldiers pinned down by Taliban fighters in Afghanistan, told The New York Post that he aspires to become a New York City firefighter.

"It’s something I’ve always wanted to do. It’s a way I feel I can do my part in giving back to America,” Meyer said after he tossed out a ceremonial pitch at the Mets' Citi Field, the paper reported.

Meyer's grandfather was a firefighter, and Meyer also said he was inspired by the sacrifices made by New York firefighters on 9/11.

Meyer, 23, of Columbia, Ky., ran into a setback when he learned that the deadline to join the New York Fire Department had passed and he’d have to wait four years before he could apply again, the Post reported.

But after hearing about his aspirations, city officials asked a federal judge for permission to re-open its books for aspiring firefighters, the report said. The judge has indicated that he would not oppose the city’s efforts to do so.

Officials hope to open the application window for 24 hours starting early Tuesday, just past midnight, and anyone else who wants to join can apply as well, the paper reported.

I'd be very happy to have him here as a member of the FDNY.

Not a volunteer but good for him. Nice to see the MoH carries some real weight.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Volunteer as in not forced, not as in not paid.

My guess is that he is a shoe-in for the job. Can't see the FDNY turning him down.
