Local Hero And Wounded Soldier Travis Mills Expected To Return Home Soon
I don’t know where to start this article, because anything I write won’t be tribute enough to Army Staff Sgt. Travis Mills of Vassar, Michigan. Sgt. Mills was wounded in Afghanistan and his family is eagerly awaiting his return.
As a nation we’ll never be able to give back enough when it comes to the debt we owe our Armed Forces. Hopefully as a community, we’ll be able to pay back some of that debt, when it comes to hometown hero, Army Staff Sgt. Travis Mills. Mills was in his third tour of Afghanistan, when he stepped on a IED, which caused injuries so extensive, that Mills has lost a part of each of his four limbs. Only 24, Mills is a new father and married man, and his family will obviously face a lot of struggles. Mills has been able to talk to his wife, and his family expects him home this week. Mills is undergoing multiple surgeries and is only the fourth quadruple amputee survivor in U.S. Military history. Donations can be made for his medical bills and family at TravisMills.org. There will also be a benefit Mud Bog in Vassar that you can find out about at the Travis Mills Facebook Support Site. Let’s show the world that the 810 knows how to take care of our own.
