According to Radar, a license showing that 26-year-old soldier Dakota wed a woman named Cassandra Wain back in 2008 when he was just 19. They are said to have divorced in 2010, though it remains unclear if they actually did.
Bristol, who is mom to son Tripp from her previous relationship with Levi Johnston, met Dakota last year.
In 2009, Dakota received the Medal of Honor from President Obama after running into a fire zone during an ambush in Afghanistan in 2009, saving 36 troops and killing eight Taliban militants – all after being SHOT in the arms!
But Dakota’s once sterling reputation is now taking a serious beating after the revelation, and not just from commentators on the Internet – but also from the friends of his ex-wife, one of which alleges he’s been “hiding” his previous nuptials.
While that much appears to be true, what remains unclear is whether the couple has since officially divorced.

The announcement follows the former reality TV star’s twice failed engagements to Levi Johnston, who’s the father of her 6-year-old son Tripp
