The Islamic State group has encouraged its members to target military personnel in their homes, but for Marine Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer, having a few terrorists show up at his door would be a “dream come true.”

Mr. Meyer posted a photo Tuesday on Twitter of himself in a chair with a pipe in his mouth, the Handbook for Marine NCOs in one hand and a sword in the other.

The photo was posted with the accompanying text: “Wonder if any ISIS members want to drop by and join my book club.”

“Hopefully one of these [expletive] actually shows up,” Mr. Meyer told Military Times Wednesday. “They’ll definitely get more than they want at my place.”

Mr. Meyer was presented with the Medal of Honor in 2011 by President Obama for saving 36 of his comrades’ during an ambush in Afghanistan. He was the third living recipient of the Medal of Honor for service in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the first Marine, Reuters reported Sept. 15, 2011.

“The wrong people to be targeting in the United States of America is our military, because [they are] the finest men and women on the face of the earth,” Mr. Meyer told Military Times. “I’m just tired of us as Americans living in fear. I want people to know: Stand up to this; stand up to these people. I don’t want to put anybody else in harm. They can come after me.”
