In January 2014, David Vobora, a five-year veteran of the NFL, met U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills. A little less than two years earlier, Travis was serving with the 82nd Airborne on his third tour of duty in Afghanistan.
This tour changed everything.
While on patrol, Travis was critically injured by an IED (improvised explosive device), losing portions of both legs and both arms. Along with former Chive Charities recipient Taylor Morris, Travis became one of only five quadruple amputees from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to survive his injuries.
