VASSAR, MI — Vassar's local hero, Travis Mills, has been getting attention and support from plenty of sources since April 2012, when he was injured by an IED while stationed in Afghanistan, losing all four of his limbs.

One of those sources was a filmmaker interested in telling the story of the army staff sergeant, who is one of only five military personnel members to survive the loss of both arms and legs during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

'Travis: A Soldier's Story,' is currently filming in Dallas, Texas, where Mills and his wife Kelsey have traveled to work with Fotolanthropy.com filmmaker Katie Norris, who is producing a documentary short focusing on Mills' wounds, his recovery, and his family life.
