COLUMBIA, S.C. (WACH) -- Columbia is set to honor a quad amputee wounded warrior on Friday.
The documentary film, Travis: A Soldier's Story, is set to premiere in Columbia Friday at 7 p.m. at the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Christ Chapel.
SSG Travis Mills will be in attendance at this special screening. The documentary shows Travis's fight to overcome adversities of being a quadruple amputee after being wounded by an IED (improvised explosive device) in action while serving in Afghanistan on his third tour of duty in April 2012.
He is one of just five quadruple-amputees from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to survive their injuries.
Tickets are $7 and can be purchased here or at the door.
