Homecoming Planned For Quadruple Amputee Travis Mills (Video)

Travis Mills Dance Moves

Army Staff Sgt. Travis Mills has made remarkable progress since losing parts of all four limbs in April during his deployment in Afghanistan. Mills, one of only five quadruple amputees to survive the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, plans to return to his hometown in Michigan next month for his alma mater's homecoming parade.

Vassar High School principal Principal Paul Wojno told the Tuscola Today that his school plans a parade (of which Mills will be the Grand Marshal) and a ceremony in Mills's honor before the school's football game:

“It will be a chaotic, but fun day. It will be such an amazing learning experience for the students.This will be a homecoming like no other.”

The homecoming festivities are scheduled for October 4th and 5th.

Oh, and if you're wondering about Mills' latest steps towards recovery, they happen to be dance moves. Check out the video posted up top, with Mills showing us all his incredible spirit - and his ability to boogie.
