Medal of Honor recipient asks POTUS for advice

Former Marine Dakota Meyer received a Medal of Honor from President Obama on Thursday for saving the lives of 36 Army soldiers, Marines and Afghani troops back in 2009. He was able to meet with Obama Wednesday to chat over a beer and on "The Early Show" Thursday morning, Meyer said he asked the president for some tips for success, according to CBS.

"He said, 'You know, first thing, get an education and he said just take it slow and don't try to make any rash decisions,'" Meyer said. On receiving the award, Meyer said it's difficult to be honored for "the worst day of your life."

"It's simple, you know. My guys were in there and they were in there fighting and I needed to be in the fight with them," he said.
