SSG Travis Mills: 12th Alive Day Celebration

Help the Travis Mills Foundation celebrate the 12th Alive Day of U.S. Army SSG (Ret.) Travis Mills on April 10, 2024. We’re so grateful for all that Travis has accomplished in the 12 years since a life-changing injury inspired him to give back to fellow post-911 recalibrated veterans and their families. 

Kicking off March 30 and continuing the next 12 days, the Travis Mills Foundation will feature the No. 12 and elements of the Travis Mills Foundation, the Retreat, and more!

In honor of this special milestone, we need YOUR SUPPORT to help us raise $12K in recognition of the past 12 incredible and inspiring years! Please consider a donation to show your support and gratitude for Travis’s 12th Alive Day, ALL to support our nation’s heroes served at the Foundation.
