**NOW SHOWING IN SELECT CITIES!!**
Travis: A Soldier’s Story is a challenging documentary featuring the inspiring true story of United States Army Sergeant Travis Mills of the 82nd Airborne. Travis lost portions of both arms and legs as the result of an IED (improvised explosive device) on April 10, 2012 while on patrol during his third tour of duty in Afghanistan, making him one of just five quadruple-amputees from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to survive their injuries. Featuring powerful interviews and emotional reenactments from Travis and Kelsey Mills and fellow soldiers who witnessed the events of April 10th, Travis: A Soldiers Story is an intimate look into the life of a wounded solider as he faces the unimaginable physical and emotional challenges of this life-altering injury. Travis’s story sheds light on the daily inward and outward struggles of our wounded veterans and the difficult rehabilitation processes they face; and Travis’s openness and incredible perseverance will challenge us to look at the way we deal with our own personal trials in life.
Fotolanthropy and Jonathon Link Studios are pleased to announce that, after a successful Kickstarter campaign, Travis’s story was turned into a feature documentary – which premiered exclusively in Dallas this August. We were honored to have the opportunity to film with Travis, Kelsey and a few of Travis’s fellow soldiers early this spring and are now rolling the film out in select theaters nationwide. The outpouring of support for this project has been truly amazing, and we are so thankful to each and every individual who has made this project possible.

This film is just one soldier’s story but we hope that Travis’s story will encourage other soldiers dealing with physical and emotional wounds, and anyone facing difficult circumstances in their life. We also hope it will affirm and renew an attitude of support for our troops, who so selflessly risk their lives everyday for our freedoms.
