This is the second week of the Women Veteran Athletes Initiative from the Center for Women Veterans. The CWV is spotlighting ten women in this initiative and we will have four of them on the podcast. Last week we featured Bernie Donato, and this week we feature Mila Dimal.

Mila Dimal served as an aviation mechanic in the US Navy and Navy Reserves, retiring after 20 years of service.  Her passion is being the best mother, friend, and employee possible, and she credits sports and physical activities with helping her meet her goals, and setting a great example for her children.

Mila speaks with us about joining the Navy, a great person she served with, her transition out, getting introduced to Team RWB, becoming a chapter leader, and the military experience that contributes to her success today.

The #VApodcast is now available in iTunes. Search “This Week at VA” in the Apple Podcast app, on Stitcher, or click here to see it in the iTunes store.
