User submit: helping injured Travis Mills (6 Photos and story)

“I worked with SSG Travis Mills a few years ago and he is one of the best paratroopers I have even had the pleasure of knowing and working with.  He is a true American hero and I was hoping you could post his support website on The Chive so he can continue to get the support he deserves.”

Here is some further info on Travis:
“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 by an IED (improvised explosive device) while on patrol, losing portions of both legs and both arms. He is only the fourth quadruple amputee, 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, Travis has returned to the Walter Reed Army Medical Center, near Washington DC, where he is on the road to recovery. 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.”
