In this episode, Navy Veteran Montel Williams sits with Dr. Ron Hirschberg to discuss his three 17-year long careers, the first of which as Navy Intelligence Officer, followed by his prolific and award-winning talk show, which led to work and support in veteran trauma, a multiple sclerosis foundation, and bringing service and giving to military families together with Lifetime's Military Makeover. Among other decorated honors, Mr. Williams holds two Navy Commendation Medals, two Humanitarian Service Medals, and...two Emmys, and has shown the world many forms of service with interwoven themes of leadership, storytelling, wellness, and always giving back.
Thank you Navy Veteran Montel Williams for your service and ongoing service in many ways - shining the light on veterans and families with the Military Makeover crew, and for all you do in health advocacy and growth. We look forward to more conversations with you on veteran and military family needs as someone who really walks the walk.
Check out Military Makeover on Lifetime and of course we will tune in especially for Lynn, MA family this summer.
