133rd Airlift Wing Receives Resilience Training through First Hand Experience

Posted: 2014-11-19  10:32 AM
Minnesota National Guard ST. PAUL, Minn.- Members of the 133rd Airlift Wing received a gripping presentation on the topic of resiliency during November drill from a man who has dealt with personal hardships in his life. Mr. Dave Roever, a Navy Veteran, suffered severe injuries that left him unrecognizable after a phosphorous grenade exploded near his face in Vietnam.

Roever's harrowing account of how he ultimately triumphed over both physical and mental obstacles is what he shares worldwide as a message of hope. The distinct scars that combat left on his face and body were only superficial compared to the battle he was fighting within - thoughts of ending his life was something Roever struggled with regularly when trying to get his life back together. His personal motto that he attributes to Sir Winston Churchill is "Never, Never, NEVER Give Up."
