Meyers was an active youngster--growing up in the Pacific Northwest he built and used a diving helmet at the age of thirteen, and climbed all six major peaks in Washington state when he was sixteen.

He entered the University of Washingtons Navy Reserve Officer Training School and graduated as a 2nd lieutenant of Marines in 1945. Following battle action during the Korean War, Meyers spent much of his time in the Marines developing clandestine means to insert specialized troop units in the war zones. Some of the techniques Meyers developed are now used by Navy SEALS and other branches of the military.

By the time of the Vietnam War Meyers had been advanced in rank to colonel, and among other assignments he commanded 6,300 men at the site of the fabled siege of Khe Sahn. He retired after twenty-eight years in the Marine Corps and returned to the Pacific Northwest, where he practiced law for more than two decades.
