MA3 Decker, Dwight D.
Aug. 22nd, 2011
My name is Dwight Decker; I work in the United States Navy in the Naval Security Forces. Since 2007, I have been stationed in Charleston, SC where I have been performing security at the Navy Nuclear Power Training school. I have a Master’s degree in Forensic Psychology from one of the best private Universities in the country, Tiffin University, located in Tiffin, Ohio.
I have been involved in the field of Criminal Justice since 1997. I have done every kind of police work from undercover narcotics to SWAT. I live my life at a high speed pace. I have never been addicted to any substance or alcohol; in fact I am one of the few people in this world who has never even smoked marijuana.
After Sept. 11, 2001 I felt compelled to serve my country, I went back to school and finished up my degrees and I got hired on to the Tiffin Police Department where I worked as a police officer while I was trying to obtain my masters degree. In the mean time I went through the Miami-Dade SWAT School and I felt this was my calling.
I went to every recruiter trying to find a niche I could be the most effective on a team (Special Forces) after a Army recruiter forged some papers and shot my dream at every becoming a Army Ranger, I thought all hope of going into the service was lost.
Finally after a few years I received a phone call from a old junior high buddy of mine Chief Mark Bloomfield asking me if I was still interested at joining the military. After hearing every broken promise from a recruiter I told him that if he could get me in I would sign the paper work that day! 2 hours went by he called me back and said you leave for MEPS next Wednesday! I was thrilled, everything I ever wanted to do was serve my country like the rest of my family.
Times have changed and priorities have shifted, but I knew the Navy would get me out of the hole I was in and change my life for the better. I went to MEPS, and I passed everything with flying colors. I went on to boot camp in Chicago, IL and graduated as Honor Graduate in my class, then I went on to “A” school down in Lackland, TX where I graduated as the class leader. I finally found my calling!
I received my orders to Charleston, SC where I would be part of an elite group of MA’s protecting the Nuclear Power Training School. I served here for over 3 years before I started to notice my body starting to hurt. I’m not talking about muscle hurt; I’m talking about bone hurt the kind of pain that just doesn’t go away no matter how much you take care of your self. Every Navy doctor I talked to told me it was just my years of power lifting and martial arts taking its toll on me. I went with that for awhile but then one day I had enough. I requested my shoulder be X-rayed, found out I had a torn rotator cuff, and my collar bone had started to cut into my tricep and bicep. I went in for a successful surgery, and soon was back to lifting weight (lightly). After months of rehab I went in for my final check up with my surgeon and he stated he did not like the way my collar bone had come undone. So he asked to take some X-rays of my other major joints, hips, knees, and ankles. Come to find out I was missing half the head of my right femur; I had no socket in my right side of my pelvis area. My left hip has a shallow socket, my knees are bone on bone, and I have arthritis through out my entire spine which is causing me to have to have my L-3-S-1 removed soon.
I have had my right hip replaced, needing my left one soon. I have also had over 25 shots in my spine to try and control the damage being done. Now I am seeing a neurologist for my back surgery coming up to get things to the point where I can at least live a somewhat healthy life. I mean I am only 33 years old! This stuff does not happen to people my age with out some sort of trauma or accident.
One night I could not sleep due to the amount of pain I was in, and of course I did not want to wake up my wonderful wife and our baby so I stated to surf the web just trying to find some sort of answer or miracle drug to help my situation, I did not care where I had to go to find this drug, but I wanted something!
I came across www.swatsteam.com, I checked out their site, read about their products & I told myself hey what do I have to lose. So, I sent a letter to Mitch Ross and I titled it “33 year old SOUP SANDWHICH” PLEASE HELP!! Well God does answer prayers because in a matter of hours I had a response saying to give him a call in the morning. I did just that!!
I spoke to Mitch and told him my story that I live my life high speed- low drag, and I am not looking for something that I am just going to end up regretting even spending my time or money on. Mitch told me he would take care of me, and I was in shock at just what his team did for me!
Mitch sent me some of every product they carry and even called me to make sure I knew exactly how to use it. They sent me the L.E.A.P., Performance Chips, The Ultimate Spray, and the Pain Management Chips, and even the Performance Bands.
My daily life was about to change! I stopped feeling sorry for myself, and I actually started to get my “Mojo” back. I would wake up every morning and drink the L.E.A.P. and put on the pain management patches (3 on my back & 1 on my right hip, the one I had replaced over a year ago). With in 20 minutes after doing this I felt like a new person! I am not one for “magic serums, and patches” by any means, and to be honest I had a feeling of “here we go again.” But I am telling you, as I sit here today, this stuff works wonders! I felt like I could do anything I use to before I got this diagnosis about my rare disorder, which is osteoarthritis advanced with degenerating bones and about 4 other million dollar words to describe in short that I am messed up… Anyways, this was just the first day! So I went about my day doing things just waiting for the pain to come back with a vengeance, but it never did! So the second day I upped my water intake to 1 gallon of filtered water, and repeated all the steps other again. The next day and the next I did the same routine, feeling better each and every day I followed this program. Every day I would call Mitch and just say thank you, because I don’t know what I would be doing with out these patches and other supplements in my life. Mitch’s reply simply was, you remember what I told you on the phone the first time we talked,” and I replied “I sure do!” he was right! God is very good! And Prayers do get answered!
I told Mitch that I want to be a walking talking billboard for his company and I want to tell everyone I can about these chips. They are truly amazing! It’s like your taking 10-15yrs off your body simply by following the instructions with every supplement you take, or every patch you put on. My last conversation with Mitch I told him that I just left the gym and I did something I have not done in over a year, he asked, “what’s that?” I told him I hit focus mitts for the first time in over a year with our boxing coach and I felt great doing it!
GOD IS GREAT and prayers do get answered! I go through life trying to help everyone I can, because I never know when I might need the help someday, well today is that day for me, and Mitch and his SWATS TEAM really stepped up to the plate on this for me, and now I want to do the same for them!
I use to tell people all the time that I live my life by one saying, and that is; “If I can not stand up and defend those around me who can not stand up and defend themselves then what good am I.” Well now that is the second saying because the first is God does answer prayers! And he is real!
Pease go to www.swatsteam.com and check out the site and their products, I am a living testimony to these great products and the people who sell them.
