BIO:

Travis Mills
Retired U.S. Army Staff Sergeant and recalibrated Warrior
During his three combat-filled tours of duty in Afghanistan, former college sports star and skilled paratrooper United States Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills never once backed down from the hardest challenges that came his way. The big, likeable guy literally woke up every morning proudly singing the 82nd Airborne song to encourage and motivate the men he led. But late one afternoon in April 2012 while he and his men were on a routine mission near a remote village in southern Afghanistan, the unthinkable happened. While patrolling for improvised explosive devices (IEDs), the minesweeper missed one IED, and Mills’ world changed forever. In his vivid talks, Mills recalls his heroic fight for survival, the action-packed and challenging days of his earlier tours of duty with the legendary 82nd Airborne Division, the agony of encountering a hidden bomb while on patrol with his men, and his odds-defying physical and spiritual struggle afterward to come back from severe quadruple amputee injuries and rebuild his life. Travis Mills’ story inspires, encourages, challenges, and motivates audiences to move forward. He illustrates how resilient the human spirit is, how unbreakable the will is when pressed with difficult demands, and how triumphant a person can be when tasked with the seemingly impossible.

Mills’ story inspired the creation of the documentary Travis: A Soldier’s Story which played in theaters nationwide and has been featured on local and national news including Fox News’ Happening Now with Jenna Lee, CNN with Barbara Starr, and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Mills’ story is being adapted into a major motion picture.
