Quadruple amputee from Afghanistan war doing good for others

- Staff Sergeant Travis Mills lost all four limbs to an improvised explosive device (IED) during his third deployment to Afghanistan five years ago, in 2012.

Mills is one of only five quadruple amputees from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but he hasn't let his injuries keep him down.

In fact, he has gone on to be a motivational speaker, the subject of a documentary film and the author of a best-selling book.

Mills is also helping his fellow wounded warriors and their families through the nonprofit Travis Mills Foundation.

The organization is transforming a property in Rome, Maine, into a special retreat for wounded veterans and their families.
