Retreat For Wounded Warriors Wraps Up On A Snowy Note

Dec 14, 2017

ROME, Maine - A retreat for combat-injured veterans created by a quadruple amputee is wrapping up its first full season with a snowy session.
 
The Travis Mills Foundation is hosting a winter retreat for five veterans and their families from hurricane-damaged Florida and Texas.
 
Mills attended the kickoff Wednesday night, replete with a visit by Santa and Mrs. Claus.
 
There's no more kayaking or tubing in the lake, but there's still plenty to do, including inside. There's plenty of snow for building snowmen.
 
The retreat created by Mills has served nearly 90 veterans and families this season. Mills lost parts of all four limbs in an explosion in Afghanistan.
