In response to BAE Systems attempting to defame former Marine Corporal Dakota Meyer Ancient Rome Refocused awards him with the CORONA CIVICA. It seems his former employer wanted to sell better equipment to Pakistan then the ‘outdated’ equipment being offered to our own troops. He sent an email to his supervisor expressing his ‘disapproval.’ For that they attacked his character.
In ancient times the CORONA CIVICA, a crown of oak leaves, were awarded to public figures who had been of great service to Rome. Quite often on my podcast I talk about how we have fallen into the failings of empire, but Dakota Meyer has shown all the strength and ‘backbone’ of Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus. Meyer is of the old vein; a time when a Roman’s word was his bond.
He is the type of Roman, the type of AMERICAN that shows virtue.
However, it seems BAE Systems are the type of individuals that would have opened up the gates for Alaric the Visigoth if there was enough GOLD in their pocket.
BAE can’t touch Meyer, they never will. Meyer respects God, Country and his fellow servicemembers.
BAE only worships…GOLD.
BAE you owe him an apology. Give it to him, pay him damages, and decide which side you are on.

Meyer drops defamation lawsuit against BAE

Marine Sgt. Dakota Meyer said in a statement Thursday that he is dropping the defamation claim against BAE Systems OASYS and a former supervisor, Bobby McCreight, because they settled their differences amicably.
The company says it is pleased the matter is resolved. No terms were disclosed.
Meyer filed the lawsuit in San Antonio last month alleging the company undermined him after he expressed disapproval that it had pursued selling certain weapon components to Pakistan.
Meyer received the Medal of Honor for his actions during a 2009 battle in Afghanistan.
Rob Cain’s Commentary:
Good. I mean it — good. In the article its says they “settled their differences.” I will make the following assumptions. BAE told this so-called supervisor to “apologize” and shut his ‘flapping’ mouth. Dakota Meyer by dropping the suit has once again proved himself the better person. They don’t call it the Medal of Honor for nothing.
