Finally get to share a fun announcement with everyone: Travis: A Soldier’s Story will be shown at a special private viewing for Congress on Capitol Hill on November 18th. Travis and Kelsey, along with fellow quadruple-amputee Taylor Morris, producers Katie and Reece Norris and Jonathon will all be in attendance. (You can read more about Taylor’s story at http://www.taylormorris.org) This showing was organized by Rep. Bruce Braley of Iowa.
How can you help? Contact your representative and encourage them to attend this showing. With all the conflict and frustration in our country right now, it is easy to forget sometimes that despite these frustrations, we really are truly blessed to live in a country with such freedom; and Travis: A Soldier’s Story is a film meant to remind of us of the individual men, women and families who volunteer to help protect those freedoms. No matter what our party lines or political positions, our nation’s service members and their families truly deserve to be honored for the sacrifices they make for all of us.
You can find out who your representative is at this handy dandy link – http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/ which gives you an instant link to their contact information.
Please continue to keep all of these young men and their families in your prayers.
Without their support and willingness to revisit and share their experiences, this film wouldn’t have been possible.
Thank you again to all of you who have supported us – whether through Kickstarter, attending premieres, or even just Facebook comments. This is all such a new experience for us, and it has been so great to see how Travis’s story has impacted others and this little film continues to grow.
