Sgt. Travis Mills first spoke with us 1 year ago today shortly after an IED explosion in Afghanistan left him a quadruple amputee.
In just 1 short year he has learned to stand, walk, run, even ski! His humor and good spirits has been an inspiration to all of us here at Happening Now and we have had the pleasure of speaking with him numerous times over the past year.
A documentary about his life will premier on Thursday, August 15th at Angelika Theater in Dallas, TX. In between his therapy at Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda he has traveled to Michigan to speak before the Michigan State Senate and even taken time to visit victims of the Boston bombing who lost limbs.
Today, he joined us on the phone from Belgrade, Maine where his idea to have a camp for disabled veterans is becoming a reality. The Travis Mills Project is a camp where disabled veterans and their families can come for a week of rest and recreational fun...for FREE! They can go boating, swing a tennis racket, fish, or just hang out in their own private cabins.
