Montel Williams

Montel Williams enlisted with the U.S. Marines after graduating high school in 1974. After impressing his superiors, he was sent to the U.S. Naval Academy and in 1976 was honorably discharged from the Marines and then enlisted as a midshipman in the Navy. In 1980, Montel became the first black enlisted marine to graduate from the Academy Prep School. After being sent to Guam, California, and Maryland, Montel found a love and compassion for speaking, which inspired him to leave the Navy, after ranking as Lieutenant, and become a talk show host.
