Thursday, July 5, 2012
Quadruple amputee Army Sgt. Travis Mills, who lost all four limbs to an IED explosion in Afghanistan on April 10th, has made so much progress in his recovery that he was able to visit the Fox News studios in New York City for an interview this week.
Mills is just one of five people in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars to survive losing all four limbs, according to the Army Times.
Mills has more than 20,000 fans on his Facebook page, which gives updates on his progress at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. His wife Kelsey, and baby daughter Chloe, are also regulars on the page. In addition, the family has a website, TravisMills.org, where Kelsey posts updates on Travis's recovery.
The 25-year-old Mills is a member of the 82nd Airborne Division, based in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. He received his injuries on his third deployment to Afghanistan.
