Precast of Maine is proud to show support for the Travis Mills Foundation. We honor our veterans and their families, who have sacrificed so much for our nation. Many of our veterans have returned home seriously wounded and need prosthetics, training in the use of the prosthetic, physical therapy, counseling and ample amounts of encouragement.
The Travis Mills Foundation supports, encourages and helps fellow wounded warriors. “In September 2013, Travis founded the Travis Mills Foundation, a nonprofit organization, formed to benefit and assist combat-injured veterans. Retired United States Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills of the 82nd Airborne is a recalibrated warrior, motivational speaker, actor, author and an advocate for veterans and amputees. Despite losing portions of both arms and legs from an IED while on active duty in Afghanistan, Travis continues to overcome life’s challenges, breaking physical barriers and defying odds. Every day is a battle, but Travis continues to astound friends and family alike with his progress and with his amazing spirit. SSG Travis Mills is a genuine American hero, and for his incredible sacrifice, we are forever in his debt.” (See website below.)
GRAND OPENING Summer 2017, Travis Mills Foundation opens a private resort for veteran amputees and their families. “The Maine Chance Lodge & Retreat sits on a pristine vista in the Belgrade Lakes region of Maine. The property is a well-known landmark in central Maine, and provided a bit of glitz and glamour to the region. Built in 1929 by cosmetics pioneer Elizabeth Arden, this historic property was once part of Ardenʼs estate spanning 1,200 acres and employing hundreds during the height of the Depression. In its day, the lodge pampered the rich & famous. Soon, it will do the same for our nation’s bravest. We are scheduled to open summer 2017 to host combat-injured veterans and their families. Future plans include winter and summer season program weeks as well. The memories and experiences these families will share will last a lifetime. The retreat will become a true and lasting symbol of a grateful nation.” (See website below.)
Precast of Maine was honored to help donate precast concrete products to the Travis Mills Foundation. It is our hope to see the foundation help veterans and amputees for years to come!
