The Home Front Cares Annual Dinner with Speaker Tr...

Presented by Home Front Cares at The Broadmoor Hotel

Join The Home Front Cares to welcome retired U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills of the 82nd Airborne at our 13th Annual For The Love Of Our Troops dinner, sponsored by Loaf ‘N Jug.

Thousands of soldiers die each year to defend their country.

United States Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills was sure that he would become another statistic when, during his third tour of duty in Afghanistan, he was caught in an IED blast while on patrol on April 10, 2012. This was a mere four days before his twenty-fifth birthday. Against the odds, he survived, but at a severe cost. Travis became one of only five soldiers from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq to survive a quadruple amputation.

Suddenly forced to reconcile with the fact that he no longer had arms or legs, Travis was faced with a future drastically different from the one he had imagined for himself. He would never again be able to lead his squad, hold his wife’s hand, or pick up his infant daughter.

Travis struggled through the painful and anxious days of rehabilitation so that he could regain the strength to live his life to the fullest. With enormous willpower and endurance, the unconditional love of his family, and a generous amount of faith, Travis shocked everyone with his remarkable recovery.

Even without limbs, he still swims, dances with his wife, rides mountain bikes, and drives his daughter to school every day.

Travis inspires thousands every day with his remarkable journey. He doesn’t want to be thought of as wounded. “I’m just a man with scars,” he says, “living life to the fullest and best I know how.”

Travis Mills’ keynote speech teaches and inspires audiences nationwide to “Never give up. Never quit.” no matter the obstacles or circumstances. Mills’ larger-than-life personality, sense of humor and incredible spirit for life engages audiences from the moment he takes center stage.

SSG Travis Mills is a genuine American hero, and for his incredible sacrifice, we are forever in his debt.

Mills’ story also inspired the creation of the documentary “Travis: A Soldier’s Story” which played in theaters nationwide and has been featured on local and national news including Fox News’ “Happening Now with Jenna Lee,” “The O’Reilly Factor” with Bill O’Reilly, and CNN with Barbara Starr.
