Travis Mills – the American military, who while serving in Afghanistan hit by a mine. He became the fifth U.S. soldier who has lost all four limbs, but survived. The U.S. media has dubbed him a hero and Superman. Have a look at this brave man
Lost in April this year, 25-year-old Mills was struck by his desire of doctors to learn to walk again. In this photo: Travis Mills in hospital after being wounded with his wife and daughter, Kelsey, Chloe.
2. While serving in Afghanistan, Mills ran into an improvised explosive device. Doctors had to amputate all four limbs to save his life. So a strong young man, a former athlete and loving father became disabled.
3. Travis remembers how hard it was to recover and recuperate, but he said to himself: “What good is to sit by the window and feeling sorry for myself?” And his daughter, Chloe has become a major cause of his desire to live – he wanted to see how she grows.
4. At the hospital, Travis has always visited by his friends from the army. In college, Travis was a star football, basketball and baseball. He loved sports. Now at every opportunity, he tries to escape to the gym to shake the press, and “stay in shape.”
6. When Travis finally brought the prostheses, he immediately expressed a desire to go to therapy sessions. Step by step the young man went and achieved his goal – once again he feel like a complete human being.
9. In his hometown there is probably not a single post, a tree or a telephone booth, which would not have written letters to wish Travis a speedy recovery. Pictured: Travis and his wife, Kelsey, just before the accident.
10. Travis has already achieved incredible success – doctors discharged him from hospital, and now he only has regularly come to them for advice. Sam Travis is looking forward to when he will greet his comrades on his return from Afghanistan. “I’ll be there. I will stand on their dentures, and I will hand that I can wave to their friends and greet them. ”
11. “Yes, it happened to me a misfortune – Travis says – but it does not make me a hero. It just makes me a guy who did his job, he knew the consequences and those consequences occur. But I’m not a Superman. ”
