In 2007, Dave Rover shared his story with Army Soldiers in training at Fort Knox, Kentucky along with J.R. Martinez and a 10th Mountain Division Soldier. All three of these men (pictured here with then, Sergeant Tiffany Martschink) experienced burns of varying degrees on their bodies during their time of military service. Eight months into his tour of duty in Vietnam, Dave was burned beyond recognition when a phosphorous grenade he was poised to throw exploded in his hand. The ordeal left him hospitalized for fourteen months, where he underwent numerous major surgeries. His survival and life are miraculous.

I enjoyed speaking with Tiffany so much! She was so easy to talk to. So much so, that I found myself sharing more than I had anticipated. Tiffany listened patiently, and provided helpful tips, and suggested valuable resources that I will look into. I am excited to start working with her and start my journey, developing public speaking skills. I LOVE the plan of action Tiffany had in mind for me to begin; I am truly excited to see how far I can go with her guidance! THANK YOU, Tiffany! For everything. :-)

Tiffany is truly amazing and gave me personalized recommendations and feedback! She also was extremely understanding of the complexities of transitioning, and as supportive as a close family member! I’d recommend Tiffany as a mentor to just about anyone because she is extremely versatile and has diverse experience and skills.
