VASSAR, MI (WNEM) -

TV5 has new information on a local soldier who lost both his arms and legs while serving overseas.

Vassar's Travis Mills wants to start his own nonprofit foundation to help veterans and their families. His goal is to create a place where they can go to relax.

But that's not all he's doing; Mills is also learning how to snowboard and ski. Mills' learned how to navigate the slopes when he traveled to Colorado with a company that helps injured soldiers.

That trip is over and now he's back on the East Coast where he will continue getting physical therapy.

Mills was on a tour of duty in Afghanistan last April when he lost all of his limbs after being injured by an improvised explosive device.
