Quadruple Amputee Veteran To Build Fully Accessible Retreat Home For Wounded Vets

The Travis Mills Foundation Retreat (TMF), which will be able to accommodate up to 10 families at a time, allows for veterans with disabilities to "recover, relax and enjoy a wide range of adaptive sports and activities" -- like kayaking, fishing and swimming -- Mills told the outlet, helping them heal physically and emotionally.

"We just really want to give back to the veterans," Mills said. "I was given such good fortune from everybody around the nation giving back. Kelsey and I, my wife, wanted to start a foundation, and what better way to give back to ours that served ... this is how we're going to do it."
