Kentucky native and Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer says he's considering becoming a New York firefighter.
The Marine, who fought his way into an ambush in Afghanistan to rescue dozens of people, says he wants to continue to save others.
A federal judge in Brooklyn agreed today to extend the New York Fire Department application period for 24 hours for the Marine.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reports Meyer doesn't want special treatment. But the judge says he'd extend the application process for any qualified candidate.
