It was a great honor to talk to Retired United States Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills, author of the New York Times bestselling memoir Tough as They Come. In April 2012, Travis was critically injured by an improvised explosive device on his third tour of duty in Afghanistan. Travis lost portions of both legs and arms and is one of only five quadruple amputees from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to survive his injuries. And while you might think such injuries would break a person, both physically and emotionally, that's not the case with Travis. He continues to amaze his friends and family alike with his progress and amazing spirit.
