Travis Mills Biography

If you're looking for a sob story you've come to the wrong place, and Travis Mills himself will be the first to tell you so. But if you're looking for an inspiring speaker who epitomizes resilience and who will leave an indelible mark on your audience then Mills is your man. Be prepared to laugh, to reflect, to laugh again, and to stand up and cheer as Mills shares the astonishing story of how he, and his wife Kelsey, live their motto: "Never Give Up -Never Quit."

The subject of the Netflix original movie Travis -A Soldier's Story and author of the N.Y. Times Bestseller "Tough As They Come", Mills is a seasoned veteran of the speaking stage who has shared his story with millions around the world. Unabashedly using humor while sharing a story many would consider tragic, Mills redefines human capability and the remarkable power attitude has upon outcome.

Mills is a speaker you will never forget.

On April 10, 2012, United States Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills of the 82nd Airborne was critically injured on his third tour of duty in Afghanistan by an IED (improvised explosive device). As a result of the blast Mills suffered the loss of both arms and both legs. He is one of only five quadruple amputees from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Enduring a grueling rehabilitation program, Mills committed himself not only to recovery, but to fatherhood and to giving back to the veteran community any way he could.

In September 2013, Mills and his wife Kelsey founded the Travis Mills Foundation, a nonprofit organization formed to benefit and assist post 9/11 veterans who have been injured in active duty or as a result of their service to our nation. Critical to the foundation’s mission is for the veteran’s family to be included, not just the vet. Through the foundation, the veteran and their family receive an all-inclusive, all-expenses paid, barrier-free vacation to Maine where they spend time with Mills and his family, and participate in adaptive activities, bond with other veteran families, and enjoy much needed rest and relaxation in Maine’s great outdoors.

Mills' story has been featured extensively on local and national news including The Ellen DeGeneres Show, NBC, CBS, Fox News, The O’Reilly Factor, CNN and countless other outlets.

Speaking Topics
  • Never Give Up, Never Quit!

    Be prepared to laugh, cry, laugh some more, and stand up and cheer while listening to Travis Mills share his astonishing story of survival and unending service to his country and his fellow man. One of only five quadruple amputees from the war in Iraq/Afghanistan, Travis is the NY Times Best-Selling Author of ‘Tough As They Come’ and one of the most critically acclaimed inspirational speakers in the world. A master of the one-liner, Travis’ infectious humor turns his remarkable story of resilience and overcoming adversity into the highlight of any meeting, conference or convention. As the founders of The Travis Mills Foundation, Travis and his wife Kelsey continue to serve hundreds of other injured service men and woman, and their families, each year.

    “That bomb took my arms and it took my legs, I can’t change that. But it was up to me to decide if it would also take my spirit. It was up to me to decide to get back up, to never quit…and that is what I choose to do, every day.” – Travis Mills
