Mortach Million Dollar Challenge

If you are like me, you have probably never thought about how different and challenging daily life would be if missing an arm, a leg – or worse all four as a result of serving our country.

The sad fact is many of our valiant and brave military service personnel have and are returning to the states for treatment and rehab as a result of such horrific battlefield injuries. Until you read, see or hear about such a story, comprehending the trauma and immeasurable challenge these heroic individuals face is likely obscure.

I met United States Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills at a conference this year. Travis was there as a motivational speaker. In 2012 Travis was critically injured during his third tour of duty while on routine patrol in Afghanistan. His injuries weren’t typical. They were life-altering. He is only one of five quadruple amputees from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to survive such injuries. 

As a result of his experience, Travis and his wife, Kelsey, created a foundation to help other veterans and their families recover and reconnect – together as a family.
