In April 2012, US Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills was critically injured by an improvised explosive device (IED) during his third tour of duty in Afghanistan. Mills managed to survive the physical trauma, joining a tiny group of veterans who survived similar misfortunes and now live as quadruple amputees.
 

 
The beginning of Mills' growing profile started the following year from the establishment of his own foundation to help fellow soldiers get the services they deserve after suffering combat injuries.
 
The focus of the documentary, completed in 2013, delves into the history of his family, his fellow soldiers, and re-enacts the incident that, for better or worse, has forever changed Mills' life.
 
 
Mills and his family have been spotted at numerous fundraisers in Maine trying to keep awareness about ongoing issues for veterans as his flagship project in Rome (Maine) moves forward.
 
 
Subscribers can launch Netflix on a variety of devices to watch Travis: A Soldier's Story.
