SSG Travis Mills coined the term “recalibrated veteran” after losing portions of his limbs in an IED explosion while serving our country in Afghanistan. He was injured and healed; he didn’t want to be called a “wounded warrior.” His wounds had healed, so, therefore, he wasn’t wounded anymore. Instead, he referred to himself as recalibrated. He adjusted to his new normal; he recalibrated.

Warrior PATHH is the first-ever program in the country designed to build Post-Traumatic Growth in combat veterans and first responders. It enables these wounded warriors to transform times of struggle into profound strength and growth. The training begins with a 7-day on-site initiation at the Travis Mills Foundation, followed by 90 days of training delivered by PATHH guides who have all completed the program themselves and are a bit further down the path. 


The Recalibrate Program is one of our newer programs as of 2022. This program capitalizes on a participant’s motivation after attending the Retreat through financial assistance, goal setting, and long-term follow-up. This program assists with a wide range of things, including but not limited to providing a computer for someone’s home office, helping with moving expenses for a critical move, or even helping to pave a driveway.
