“I Can Never Forget That I’m a Failure…”

“…and it’s in the face of the nation, not just me.”
~ Dakota Meyer

Heartwrenching, God bless him.

…Believing he had become a burden to his family, Dakota turned to the bottle. One night driving home he stopped his truck and pulled out a gun.

“I was just like, ‘Now I’m done.’ And I always kept my pistol in my Trailblazer. I squeeze the trigger and [was] amazed that . . .there was nothing in it.”

“You put the gun to your head, and pulled the trigger?” asked Martin.

“Yeah. Click. That’s the loudest click you’ll ever hear.”

“Do you know why there wasn’t a round in that chamber?”

“You could state the obvious reason, that somebody took it out.”

After the click, Meyer said, he sobered up instantly.

Was that the low point? Martin asked.

“Oh, yeah, you don’t, you don’t get any lower than that,” he replied.
