MEET MEECH SPEAKS
His story is no different than many youths, born in a metropolitan area riddled with drugs, crime, and plagued with addiction. Demetrius, the middle child of three siblings, was raised by a single mother due to the absence of his father. Demetrius had to experience at an early age just how detrimental addiction was and the damage it can do to a family. Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, drugs, crime, addiction, and violence were the norm; and it was a life expected for most.
Since joining the United States Marine Corps upon graduating high school. Demetrius has faced obstacles and overcame adversity; he also deployed to different countries in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, and the Special Purpose Marine Air Ground Task Force. These tours along with many other challenges would go on to transform him into the man he is today.
