Bristol Palin says she’s engaged to Medal of Honor recipient

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Bristol Palin says she is engaged to Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer.

The daughter of former Alaska governor and former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin said in a blog post Saturday that Meyer came to Alaska to film the “Amazing America” reality show with her mother last year. She says Meyer is wonderful with her son Tripp.

Meyer was awarded the Medal of Honor in 2011.

The Kentucky native is credited with saving the lives of 36 Marines, Army soldiers and Afghan soldiers while providing cover for them to find their way out of a firefight with the Taliban.

Sarah Palin posted a link to her daughter’s blog post from her verified Facebook account. Family attorney John Tiemessen didn’t return an email or voicemail message seeking comment.
