Despite losing portions of both arms and legs from an IED while on active duty in Afghanistan, he continues to overcome life’s challenges, breaking physical barriers and defying the odds.

Mills and his wife Kelsey founded the Travis Mills Foundation, a nonprofit organization, formed to benefit and assist post 9/11 veterans who have been injured in active duty or as a result of their service to our nation. 

The Mills Group LLC was started shortly after, affording Mills the opportunity to speak to companies and organizations nationwide inspiring all to overcome life’s challenges and adversity. His story has been featured on Fox NewsThe O’Reilly FactorCNN and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Sergeant Mills will share his courageous story with us and explain his personal motto, “Never give up.
