Cosford Theatre to host viewing of Travis: A Soldier’s Story film

The movie Travis: A Soldier’s Story documents a two-year recovery battle.

Travis Mills, a soldier serving in the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Division on his third tour in Afghanistan, lost parts of both arms and legs when he stepped on an improvised explosive device on Apr. 10, 2012.

Miraculously he overcame insurmountable odds during a twoyear recovery battle documented in a film to be shown on Mar. 3 at the University of Miami’s Cosford Theatre to raise funds for wounded warriors.

His story is one of courage, determination and love for his beautiful wife, Kelsey, and their baby girl, Chloe. Travis is one of only five quadruple amputees from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to survive his injuries and that speaks volumes.

On returning to his hometown, Travis received a hero’s welcome and was even invited to serve as the grand marshal of his old high school’s homecoming parade. That was just the beginning for this amazing father, son, and soldier who has since created the Travis Mills Foundation, a non-profit organization to help wounded veterans.

An inspiration to all, he then established Travis Mills Group LLC, a consulting firm specializing in inspiring others to overcome their difficulties and the seemingly impossible.

From constructing a “smart home” (financed by the Gary Sinise Foundation) to appearances at the Super Bowl, Mills is a busy man who above all loves to spend time with his beautiful family.

To support Travis’ Foundation and be inspired by his journey, come to the showing of Travis: A Soldier’s Story, on Monday Mar. 3, 7 p.m., at the Cosford Theatre at the University of Miami, 5030 Brunson Dr. in Coral Gables. Enjoy a complimentary prescreening reception, sponsored by Bacardi, that will start at 6 p.m.

Registration and ticket information can be obtained by email at One hundred percent of ticket sales will benefit the Travis Mills Foundation and its work with wounded veterans.
