Travis: A Soldier’s Story is a documentary film of the inspiring true story of United States Army Sergeant Travis Mills of the 82nd Airborne. On his third tour of duty in Afghanistan, SSG Mills was critically injured on April 10, 2012 by an IED (improvised explosive device) while on patrol. Due to the explosion, SSG Mills lost portions of both legs and both arms. He is only the fifth quadruple amputee from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to survive his injuries.
This is a wounded soldier’s unique and powerful story. Even though SSG Mills has endured this unimaginable tragedy, he fights daily to recover for his wife and one year old daughter and to live a fulfilled life. Travis is defying all odds by the progress he has made in under six months. His story has touched hearts across the globe. Our goal in creating this film is to inspire and give hope to others as the theme of perseverance despite difficult circumstances is universal.
