The Event Program
- Movie presentation of Travis: A Soldier's Story
On April 10, 2012, life for the Mills family dramatically changed forever. A routine patrol in Afghanistan turned into the fight of SSG Travis Mills's life when he was hit by an IED and lost portions of both arms and legs. Featuring powerful interviews and emotional reenactments from Travis, his wife, Kelsey, and his fellow soldiers, Travis: a Soldier's Story is an intimate look into the life of a wounded warrior and his remarkable recovery. Travis's harrowing fight to overcome the physical barriers of being a quadruple amputee and be there for his wife and young daughter, Chloe, has inspired individuals across the country to persevere through life's challenges and to - "never give up. never quit."
Each and every one of us know someone who has served, is currently serving, or has given the ultimate sacrifice fighting for our great country. This is your opportunity to experience the inspiring true story of United States Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills of the 82nd Airborne. Travis lost portions of both arms and legs as the result of an IED (improvised explosive device) on April 10, 2012 while on patrol during his third tour of duty in Afghanistan.
SGT Kyle Diethrich had the honor of serving and fighting alongside Travis in Afghanistan in 2009-2010. We would like to personally invite you to experience Travis: A Soldier's Story, with this one time screening in Terre Haute.
Travis is one of just five quadruple-amputees from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to survive such extensive injuries. Featuring powerful interviews and emotional reenactments from Travis and Kelsey Mills and fellow soldiers who witnessed the events of April 10th. Travis: A Soldier’s Story is an intimate look into the life of a wounded solider as he faces the unimaginable physical and emotional challenges of this life-altering injury. Travis’s story sheds light on the daily inward and outward struggles of our wounded veterans and the difficult rehabilitation processes they face. Travis’s openness and incredible perseverance will challenge us to look at the way we deal with our own personal trials in life.
