READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
Coming up this evening on "Piers Morgan Tonight," Emmy-Winning Talk Show Host Montel Williams sits down for an emotional interview on a wide range of topics, including his ongoing battle with Multiple Sclerosis and his take on the current state of politics in America.
Before becoming the host of "The Montel Williams Show," tonight's guest served America for more than two decades – both as a marine and in the navy – and speaks with great pride about his experiences:
"I did 22 years in the military, put a uniform on my back, was willing to take a bullet for anybody, in this country, period," Williams tells Piers Morgan. "Didn't matter if they were black, white, didn't matter!"
Nearly four decades since first enlisting, Williams is deeply concerned about the lack of military experience amongst the current crop of GOP presidential candidates:
"Neither one of the Republicans that are running ever put a uniform on," he says. "This is the first time, I think, in American history that we have a larger percentage of elected officials who never put on a uniform, [yet] have the nerve to send our children off to die?"
Tune in this evening at 9 p.m. ET/PT as Williams opens up about his battle with MS, and reveals the ways in which he thinks people can transform their life.
