Marine Sgt. Dakota Meyer said the future, not his past heroics, was the topic of his private patio conversation over beers with President Barack Obama before the Kentuckian was awarded the Medal of Honor last week. Meyer spoke briefly with the Herald-Leader after Saturday's Cow Days Parade and before a meet-and-greet event with well-wishers at Greensburg Baptist Church. The parade was his first public appearance since receiving the Medal of Honor on Thursday at the White House.
