Thank you for your service Travis. I know this doesn't exactly fit your situation but parts of it do. Thank you again.
"Mrs. Bixby, Boston, Massachusetts:
DEAR MADAM: I have been shown in the files of the War Department a statement of the Adjutant-General of Massachusetts that you are the mother of five sons who have died gloriously on the field of battle. I feel how weak and fruitless must be any words of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering to you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.
Yours very sincerely and respectfully,

You are truly blessed and have improtant things to still do with your life. May you be happy and healthy and content always. Thank you for all your sacrifices and bravery.

It was an honor meeting you and Kelsey at the Pittston Fairgrounds this past weekend. I tried to express my gratitude to you, but the smoke from the BBQ pits kept getting in my eyes. I’ll try again next year. I posted your picture on a couple of Viet Nam Vet Helicopter web-rings and one Loach pilot said, “With those eyes and that smile, that’s an all-American boy. Thank God we have men like him to leave our country to”. Couldn’t have said it better. I’ll thank you for all you done, and cheer Kelsey on, and call you a true hero of our country. And get back on Fox News, it looks like they love you, too. God Bless you, Travis.

God bless you for your service, for protecting us!
Brian Quesenberry said:September 23, 2012 8:37 pm PST
My thoughts, prayers, and heartfelt gratitude are yours. Thank you for the service and sacrifice that you have given so that myself, and my family, can live in relative peace and safety, free from the constant fear that those without heroes such as yourself to defend them, endure daily. Nothing I could ever say will be enough, but I do want you to know that you DID do enough, you DID make a difference, and you ARE an American hero. God bless you and your family, and I wish you all the rewards life could possibly bestow upon you. Again, Thank You and God Bless.
Leigh Harrison said:September 23, 2012 8:29 pm PST
We've never met, but I send my wishes for your health and well-being. You are among my heroes -- a soldier who never gives up! You are a role model to us all.

Travis, I have a new Tuscola County paper article from todays paper on my wall at work with the rest of the news articiles. SUCH GREAT news today so glad you'll be back in MICHIGAN soon. You have so many people that have fallen in love with your family and amazing story!
Mrs. Schaaf said:September 15, 2012 2:31 pm PST
"Lil Stinker Boy" won't be long before you will be home with your family and the "Celebration" Love ya, Mrs. Schaaf
I have been watching your journey on the facebook page, and I cannot tell you how amazing it has been. To see you playing with Chloe and making such amazing strides is truly an inspiration to all.
Thank you for sharing your life with us, who can only stand and watch in awe at your courage, your sacrifice, (and your dance moves...) >grin<
I had the great honor and privilege of meeting Travis and his incredible family in the Dallas-Ft Worth airport on Labor Day. As I sat waiting for my traveling companions to check their bags, I noticed a joyful young man buzzing up and down the corridor with an adorable little girl in his lap - both obviously enjoying the ride! I nudged a friend sitting next to me and commented that the young man must have been injured in the war. With tears in my eyes and a grateful heart for this young man, my group continued on through security. We were fortunate to run into Travis and his family again once we were through security and he was ready with a smile and an incredible story as we marveled at his attitude and gratitude. Incredibly, after 3 tours and the loss of all of his limbs, he said he wished he could go back.
I wanted to take a moment on the 11th anniversary of 9/11 to say thank you to Travis, his family and friends, and to all of our WONDERFUL military men and women who sacrifice so much for our freedoms. You are true American Heroes and we give thanks to God for your love, commitment and dedication. You are forever in our thoughts and prayers.

Hi Travis, Kelsey and Chloe! Hope everything is going fine with you all. Travis, you look great in your pictures.
I am so happy for you. I worked for the Army and I've seen so many pictures of wounded warriors, but you are wonderful. I love your determination! I am so happy for you. Take care!
Travis and Kelsey, just want to let you know you are always in thought and prayer. I hope things are going well. Keep up the good work! Looking forward to more updates.

Travis, You did it!!! You were standing tall in uniform when your fellow soldiers came home. How proud they must be of you as well as your wonderful wife, Kelsey, and your entire family. The smile on your face as you are walking on your legs with knees says it all! Kelsey, the Travis Mills Recovery video on YouTube is wonderful. It shows how much Travis has progressed in the last 5 months and he could not have done it without you and Chloe by his side. I continue to keep all of you in my daily prayers and in my intentions at Sunday Mass. You make us proud to be American! Keep smiling and may God bless you all and keep you in His care as you continue your journey. Wishing you a good week.

Thanks for putting the videos up for us!! It was AMAZING to see how far Travis has come so FAST!! Even the dance moves aren't half bad. : ) We continue to pray as the hard work goes on.
I was very happy to see the updates and see that you are now on legs with knees, Travis! Kelsey, I am sorry to learn that you were ill and I hope you are much better now. You have to take care of yourself too!! I'm sure the new van is wonderful for all of you. It should make getting around much easier. I hope everyone will have a good week. Keep up the good work and know that there are many prayers, positive thoughts and love flowing in your direction. God bless you all and may He continue to watch over you as you move forward.
KSM said:August 26, 2012 8:54 am PST
Wow!! I thought I had been checking in enough, but clearly not!! Kelsey so sorry you were under the weather, but hope you are all better now :) And what a wonderful gift the adapted van is for all of you!! Just wonderful, but of course, as you said Kelsey, no surprise about Travis pushing through all of the obstacles to get his knees! Words, as usual just don't cut it.
Thank you Lord, for this inspiring young man and his lovely family and friends. They truly show us all how life should be lived.
May God keep watch over you all.

Hey Guys! it's so good to see Travis on his road to recovery and that you're all in this together! I'm basically from India and i first read about Travis in the local daily here. Me being an army officers daughter myself could really relate to him and what you guys must be going through. Although I'm not American, I was still so proud of him, I cried..Anyway i'd love to hear from you guys...i'll keep you in my prayers always..We love you Travis! Good job guys!!
Sherry Hume said:August 25, 2012 6:21 am PST
Hi, just letting you know I am thinking about you all and keeping you in prayers. I met you at the wounded warriors picnic. My Dad is the WWII vet you met.

I am praying for your recovery daily and will send money as soon as i can find another job. God bless and don't give up.
I hope all is well with you, Travis, and that you are continuously making progress in your recovery. I continue to keep you, Kelsey, and Chloe in my daily prayers and in my intentions at Sunday Mass. I am following the journey of another quadruple amputee, Taylor Morris, who is also making incredible progress in his recovery. All wounded warriors and their families have made incredible sacrifices which can never be repaid. We offer you our support and immense thanks for all you have done for us to keep us free. God bless you all and may you have a good week.
Wally Hinton said:August 19, 2012 3:05 pm PST
Good to see you are doing better and still fighting. It is a honor to push your story out there for you. I myself retired from the US NAVY in submarines after 25 years. You and I both put our lives out there on the line for the freedom of this country. There should be no question about helping you. You have made a huge sacrafice. I wish i could do more to help you.
