Click on the video above to watch the trailer featuring the Travis Mills story, a Vassar native serving his country in Afghanistan who lost all his limbs to an IED one year ago today.
Staff Sgt. Travis Mills lost his arms and legs while serving in Afghanistan, but he continues to serve as an inspiration. His story will soon touch even more people on the big screen as he opens up to a documentary crew.
Mills is reliving the day he stepped on an IED and giving people a peek inside his everyday life. The short film is still in the fundraising stages. It's titled Travis: A Soldier's Story.
A nonprofit called Fotolanthropy approached him about the project. Mills has received several offers for movies and books, but he said this one seemed right.
A three-and-a-half minute trailer is posted above, and it is most definitely worth your time to check out. It shows a different side of Mills, not his usual funny guy personality. At one point he becomes choked up when he remembers details of his injuries.
