Rusty Solomon is best known for his role in behavioral health in the United States. However, he did not start out in the healthcare field. In fact, as a child, he struggled to hold a steady job due to his lack of discipline. Therefore, when he was seventeen years of age, he joined the U.S. military in order to gain this discipline he needed to improve himself and thrive in this world. He rose all the way to level of Captain before he was honorably discharged. Rusty Solomon disbarred himself, but he believed that his experience in the military helped to mold the rest of his life because of the values he learned.
