You won’t want to miss our testimonials where you will hear directly from Veterans,
Caregivers and Coaches who have attended the NDVWSC how this event has impacted their
lives. This edition features:

Patrick Ward is a US 5th generation Navy Veteran. While serving Patrick sustained serious
injuries, enduring 54 surgeries, leading to the amputation of his right leg. Hear Patrick share his
story of struggles to regain faith and trust which were two things Patrick no longer had. Thanks
to the encouragement of his VA physical therapist and the promise of help, Patrick agreed to
attend the National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic. Hear Patrick’s story of how the Winter
Sports Clinic helped motivate him to turn off the TV, get up off the couch, and after much hard
work, become a member of the Paralympic men’s rowing team.

Frances Osorio-Rivera, a US Army Veteran with a left leg amputation shares her story,
“learning how to live after a traumatic loss can make the strongest minds drift in the wrong
direction and as humans, it is not a matter of if it happens, it’s a matter of when. Like everyone
else, we have our good days and we have our bad days”. Frances has an infectious attitude,
and a passion for kiteboarding, and after a trip to the National Disabled Veterans Winter
Sports Clinic….Snowboarding!
