‘Travis: A Soldier’s Story’ To Be Shown At The Carmike Cinemas [VIDEO]
The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, better known to us as Veteran’s Day, originally designated to commemorate end of “the war to end all wars.”
In November 1919, President Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day with the following words: “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…”
The original concept for the celebration was for a day observed with parades and public meetings and a brief suspension of business beginning at 11:00 a.m, However, this year, you have an opportunity to honor our Veterans in a very special way.
Travis Mills is a soldier who’s life was forever changed in 2012 when an IED exploded and he lost all 4 of his limbs. His story is a story of recovery and a honest look at the obstacles he has had to overcome. You have a chance to see this story, Thursday, November 14 at the Carmike Cinemas. The organizers of this event need to sell 17 more tickets to be able to show the documentary of this brave soldier’s life.
