Tuesday’s Keynote Speaker:  Travis Mills, Retired United States Army Staff Sergeant
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 conference. As the founders of The Travis Mills Foundation, Travis and his wife Kelsey continue to serve hundreds of other injured service men and women, 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
