Nevin is truly a miracle case. While at his annual training with the National Guard, he was taking his turn sleeping and was woken when the accident happened. Nevin's head had been run over by a 6,000 pound humvee.
"He is alive, isn't paralyzed and isn't showing signs of any brain damage by a complete miracle. He did break his neck, shoulder, ribs and has fractures in his skull. When swelling goes down they will do surgery behind his eye and put in pins to secure broken pieces. They will also put pins in his shoulder when they do surgery for that. He will be unable to work or do much for at least six months. We are so blessed he is still with us and isn't worse off than he is, but he has a long road of recovery."
With Nevin unable to work and their second child due in January, unknown medical expenses and living costs are going to be rough for this family the next year.
His wife, Alyse, said, "The guy that ran him over thought he was going to die in his arms. Instead, Nevin was keeping him calm. Nobody has a clue as to how he is alive, except that for some reason the day before I pleaded with God to keep my husband not only safe, but alive. I thought it was weird and kind of morbid. But God heard and answered my prayers and and delivered us an absolute miracle!"
That same night, Nevin's sweet dog passed away. "He had angels watching over him, something fierce." "He really did have angels with him! I'm pretty positive Bella was one of them." "She went to go protect him when he needed it more than ever before."
Nevin was a Marine for 8 years, and now he is Army National Guard. He's been on two deployments as a Marine. A 6 month to Okinawa, Japan, and a year to Ramadi, Iraq. This photo was taken the day before the accident happened.
What has happened to Nevin and his family in the last few days is unfathomable. Let's pour our love upon them, as a salute to Nevin and his family, and for their continued service to this country for 8+ years. Any donation, whether it be big or small, is greatly appreciated <3
