Meyer, 26, proposed to the 24-year-old daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin at a Rascal Flatts concert Friday, Bristol said in a blog entry titled, "Engaged!!"

"The lead singer, Gary LeVox, dedicated 'Bless the Broken Road' to us, and then Dakota got down on one knee and proposed!" Palin wrote.

"It’s amazing to see what happens when you place everything in life in God’s hands," she added. "He really is good and His plans are so much greater than our own."

From CNN:

Meyer received the nation's highest military honor for braving enemy fire in 2009 to recover 36 American and Afghan troops in Afghanistan. He was the third living recipient -- and the first Marine -- to be awarded the Medal of Honor for actions in Iraq or Afghanistan.

Bristol Palin said she and Meyer became acquainted when he came to Alaska to film part of "Amazing America," Sarah Palin's Sportsman Channel show.

"He's wonderful with Tripp and I'm so proud to be marrying him," she added.

"I'm definitely the luckiest guy in the world to be able to spend the rest of my life with Bristol Palin!" Meyer shared on Facebook.

"Coming back from Afghanistan there were days I thought I may never be happy again, and I know there's a lot of you out there who know that feeling," he added. "We only have one life to live and we have to do our best to live it the right way, and Bristol makes me a better man."

Sarah Palin congratulated the couple on her Facebook page:

"Our families couldn’t be happier for Bristol and Dakota! We’re honored to welcome Dakota into our family. He’s an American hero and patriot whose service to our country – like all his fellow Medal of Honor recipients – has been above and beyond the call of duty; but even more important is he’s a good and kind man who loves Bristol and Tripp, and is loved by them."
