Soldier’s film to be screened in Greene


GREENE — Retired Army Staff Sgt. Travis Mills will present his film “A Soldier’s Story” at 2 and 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 14, at the Araxine Wilkins Sawyer Memorial, 371 Sawyer Road.

Admission is free.

Mills served in the 82nd Airborne and is a motivational speaker, actor, author and an advocate for veterans and amputees. Despite losing parts of both arms and legs from an explosive device during his third tour in Afghanistan in 2012, he continues to overcome life’s challenges, breaking physical barriers and defying odds. Travis’ motto is “Never give up. Never quit.”

He is one of only five quadruple amputees from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to survive his injuries.

In September 2013, he founded the Travis Mills Foundation, a nonprofit organization to benefit and assist wounded and injured veterans. He also founded the Travis Mills Group, LLC, through which he consults with and speaks to companies and organizations nationwide about overcoming life’s challenges and adversity.

His forthcoming book, “Tough as They Come,” will be on sale in bookstores Oct. 27. Those who attend the screening will receive part of the book.
