United States Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills of the 82nd Airborne on his third tour of duty in Afghanistan, was critically injured on April 10th, 2012 by an IED (improvised explosive device) while on patrol, losing portions of both legs and both arms. He is one of only five quadruple amputees from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to survive his injuries. Thanks to his amazing strength, courage, an incredible will to live, the heroic actions of the men in his unit, and the prayers of thousands, Every day is a battle, but Travis continues to astound friends and family alike with his progress and with his amazing spirit. SSG Travis Mills is a genuine American hero, and for his incredible sacrifice, we are forever in his debt.
The TravisMills.org site has been built to serve as a central point of information for friends and family around the world who have been moved by his story. Through this site, we also want to reaffirm to Travis that he has an entire country behind him every step of the way as he continues recovering and inspiring those around him. It will also provide Travis and Kelsey an opportunity to share pictures, videos, links to news articles, information about charitable organizations they support, and much more.
