Howard served in the US Navy for twelve years, nine of which were as part of the SEAL Teams. After twelve years, he was medically discharged due to the injuries he sustained in Mogadishu. The Somalia conflict would later become more commonly known as "Black Hawk Down", nick-named after the story depicted by Mark Bowden in his book and movie of the same name.
Howard now lives in Georgia, where he is a practicing Chiropractic. Given his military background, personal childhood experiences, personal mentors, and upbringing, he also is a leader in his community focusing his efforts on worthy causes that encourage and promote children and teen education and personal development, such as the "Boys and Girls Club". In 2012, he was inducted into "The Jeremiah Milbank Society" by the National "Boys and Girls Clubs of America". This award was given for his contributions and for "making a difference" at the Boys and Girls Club in his hometown.
As a Chiropractor and SEAL perfectionist, Howard seeks the advancement of his profession. Howard was inspired to become a chiropractor by a South Florida chiropractor who changed his quality of life through chiropractic adjustments which allowed him to sleep through the night, something he had not done in several years. Howard speaks to State and National Chiropractic organizations and colleges on advancing the Chiropractic profession and image. He also speaks on his published paper and personal chiropractic findings regarding resolution of migraine headaches in patients.
Howard has spoken to many organizations and corporations which include, The American Chiropractic Association, Boy Scouts of America, Calvary Church, Cattlemen's Association, Far West Equipment Dealers Association, Federal Court Advisory Committee for the District of Georgia, GE/Microsoft, GST Transport Systems/USAO, Member One Federal Credit Union, Palmer Chiropractic College, TN Chiropractic Association..
