Retired U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Travis Mills is one of only five quadruple amputees of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Now recovered and continuing to live his life despite the physical barriers of having no arms or legs, Mills' story is an inspiration to all. Especially when he has a philosophy of "Never give up. Never quit."
"I woke up for the first time on my 25th birthday to find out that I had no arms or legs anymore, and I was a quadruple amputee," Mills says in this video from NowThis News.
"You're gonna fall down, but don't be embarrassed about it. Just get out there and keep going at it," he says. Mills himself has lived by this advice, keeping positive and even joking about his injuries, while serving other wounded warriors through his non-profit The Travis Mills Foundation.
