It has been so encouraging to receive the overwhelmingly positive responses and reviews of Travis: A Soldier’s Story from soldiers, veterans, nurses, doctors and family members of soldiers and veterans. We are proud to support SSG Travis Mills’s story and in doing so supporting all who are a part of the community of our wounded warriors, their families, veterans and our active soldiers and families who are in the service. Thank you for supporting this film and continuing to share his story!
Our family watched this movie as a way to commemorate Memorial Day and show respect for those that have served our country. This is a must watch. God Bless American and God Bless our veterans and military persons!
Technically, it’s not a Memorial Day story, but I’m posting it anyway, because I can’t think of a single day when it would be inappropriate to shine a light on Travis. Moreover, I’m going to encourage all of you to watch the documentary about Travis’s unbelievable life, just released on Netflix. Bias aside, this documentary is shockingly good, profoundly inspirational, and really important to see. I won’t say it’s mandatory, because I know how annoying it is to be told what to do. But if I were King of the World, I’d make every network run this film 24/7 until everyone in the country had seen it. (Yes, I’d be that kind of King.) The trailer is posted below. Give it a look, and then watch the movie. You can thank me later.

I watched this with my family last night (including kids age 10 and 12). It is a great family-friendly and inspiring account of Travis and the limitless benefits of perseverance, hard work and a good attitude. Highly recommend! Thank you for working on this project Travis; sharing your story is a continuation of your selfless service to our country.
Glad for the kind embrace of a War story of love ❤️. Its real cost lived by few. Extraordinary Heroes. My Heroes. Forever grateful and forever blessed.
Just watched, and man – you had me crying and then laughing. You are a true inspiration, Travis. This was one of the best documentaries I’ve ever seen. The support system you had was incredible, and now you’re helping others. Incredible. Thank you for your service, humor, and incredible courage.
I just finished watching it on Netflix. A deeply moving, raw journey of how God’s gift of a powerful will to not only survive, but to truly live and embrace life. Travis, you and your family are truly blessed. You are all heart ❤️! Thank you for serving and protecting our country and the innocent people of war torn countries.
My husband and I just saw this last week and it was phenomenal. That night I bought his book, Tough As They Come, and finished it last night. I am so thankful you guys made the movie and now that I know who you are I can look forward to more positive viewing opportunities. It seems society in general is spiraling out of control and the focus is on all the wrong things. I am glad to find some folks who are focused on the positive that comes out of tough situations. I can’t wait to see The Selwa Mitchell Story and The Luckiest Man. And pretty much everything else you do if it’s as well done and inspiring as Travis’s story. 🙂
Watched it last night. It was incredibly powerful and inspiring!! It’s just amazing what one can overcome with a strong mind. Thank you for your service!!
You and your family are incredible! It’s amazing to see such positivity after such a tragedy. Thank you for your service and inspiring so many people with your story. God bless you and your family.
I agree the best movie on Netflix and one up it’s the best true story movie ever.
The most touching real life hero movie on Netflix. Travis and family are true inspirations.
It was great! I cried, I laughed I loved it!
Powerful, inspiring and the strength love, hope and family gave you to overcome… A must watch documentary!
So inspiring! It really shows what the human spirit can accomplish!
Saw the movie. Shed many tears.
I had chills down my spine and tears in my eyes.
Every American should watch this and think about what sacrifices have been made and continue to be made by our soldiers. The spirit of this American hero is beyond inspiring. Freedom is not free.

It was such an inspiring story!! So beautiful.
I don’t know if Travis himself will see this but I just wanted to share what a joy it was to watch this film. I got pretty emotional a couple of times, and not because I’m a girl ? but because of his beautiful spirit and that of his wife, Kelsey. As soon as I finished the movie I bought Tough As They Come and just finished it last night and am truly sad it is over. If he ever decides to write another book I will be one of the first to buy it. I have had some tough times in my life (I’m 45 now so I have some road behind me) and, while mostly optimistic in nature, I live with anxiety and depression which can put a damper in things. I love Travis’s upbeat attitude and the point blank way he sees things. Very refreshing in a time when people in general seem to be a great deal confused on a lot of things. I have shared some short passages to my friends and family here on FB or in conversation, trying to encourage folks and to tell them to buy the book. ? Anyway, as an army veteran and a human being I want to thank Travis, Kelsey and their families for sharing their lives with us in both the film and the book and for their efforts with the Travis Mills Foundation…. Hooah!
Such a great movie. I am amazed by his story and his loving family and friends that support him. He has such a strong character that we could all learn from.
Just watched it the other night, just amazing and very empowering ????????????
Family – do not miss this inspiring story of this American Hero: Travis Mills! #GodBlessOurTroops #MemorialDayWeekend
This guy is inspiring, we should all learn something from him!
That movie was so good.
One of the best movies I have ever seen! Outstanding!
Hey y’all – this is a tremendous story…one of many that could be told. Go find this movie. It’s a must-watch.
WOW! A very inspiring true story! If you are looking for something to watch, it’s on Netflix now.
This is on Netflix now! If you haven’t seen this or heard Travis’s story…WATCH IT!! I heard stories from Stephen, my son in law, about what a great person Travis is and how he kept the guys laughing while they were in Afghanistan. Now he is an inspiration to everyone he comes in contact with and he is still making people laugh with his humor! What an incredible man! I had the pleasure of meeting Travis and I couldn’t be more in awe of his strength, courage, and perseverance!
My Hero family.
Great movie. All American boy, family, hero!
Just finished watching. An amazing story of love, courage and perseverance.. God Bless You, you are truly an inspiration
I second that, it was awesome!
Watching Travis: A Soldier’s Story on Netflix. Everyone should watch it. We have a lot to be grateful for!
Watched it twice last week, once with my husband then then again when our daughter came home from college (US Army National Guard) … so moving .. such courage so inspirational…
The documentary was fantastic!!
Just watched your documentary last night. A lesser man would not be where you are today. You are a true hero and inspiration by your attitude, and your daughter is so lucky to call you “Dad.” We appreciate your service to keep America free and strong.
I came across the documentary last week and watched it. I was so amazed & inspired by his story.
Your Netflix documentary is incredible….thank you for sharing your life. You are amazing. There are not words enough to thank you and all others for the service and sacrifice to our country.
