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.

Presented by:
Mariela Meylan joined with Dad Emile Meylan. Mariela a US Army Veteran. While deployed
in Iraq and on patrol in the Kuwait desert, Mariela was helping three soldiers change a tire on
their vehicle when they were struck by a vehicle and the driver left the scene. Two of the four
soldiers were killed at the scene, Mariela was immediately evacuated to Landstuhl Regional
Medical Center in Germany and then to Walter Reed Army Medical Center where she was in a
coma for 8 months. Mariela’s parents were told she would likely not survive. While Mariela still
has no memory of much of what happened on that day in Kuwait, Mariela not only survived but
continues to thrive and overcome obstacles and the challenges of “doing” what people think
she can’t! Hear Mariela’s story with the help of her Dad and the insight from a parent on the
impact the Winter Sports Clinic has had.
