Montel Williams’ All Natural Fight Against Multiple Sclerosis
Former talk show host Montel Williams doesn’t just have multiple sclerosis (MS), he is LIVING with MS. The health advocate has successfully managed the chronic disease for over a decade and staved off its crippling effects.
Williams enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps upon graduating high school in 1974. He completed Boot Camp at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, South Carolina, where he was promoted to platoon guide. After boot camp, he was sent to the Desert Warfare Training Center at Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center Twentynine Palms, near Palm Springs, California, where he placed in the Naval Academy Preparatory School (NAPS) at Naval Station Newport, Rhode Island. He completed the one-year NAPS course and was accepted to the four-year officer training program at the U.S. Naval Academy as part of the Class of 1980.
He left the Regular Navy at the rank of Lieutenant Commander, and his personal decorations include the Meritorious Service Medal, Navy Commendation Medal, and the Navy Achievement Medal. But unlike other soldiers, Montel went above and beyond and reached out to thousands of parents, educators and business leaders, encouraging them to work together to address youth issues, trends and to inspire youngsters to reach their highest potential. These efforts to reach out to the community eventually led to his talk show, the “Montel Williams Show”.
