The story of Travis Mills is well known in Maine. If you are unaware of his story, retired United States Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills of the 82nd Airborne is a re-calibrated warrior, motivational speaker, actor, author and an advocate for veterans and amputees. Travis’s New York Times bestselling memoir, Tough as They Come, is currently available on sale in bookstores everywhere. Despite losing portions of both arms and legs from an IED while on active duty in Afghanistan, Travis continues to overcome life’s challenges, breaking physical barriers and defying odds.

The Travis Mills Foundation has opened up their beautiful retreat home on Belgrade Lakes in Rome to host combat-injured veterans and their families. Future plans include winter and shoulder season program weeks as well. The memories and experiences these families will share will last a lifetime. The retreat will become a true and lasting symbol of a grateful nation.

Earlier today (July 10) The NBC Nightly News With Lester Holt did a great piece on Mills and the veterans retreat on the 6:30 PM newscast.
