In an undated photo provided by the Mills family, Travis Mills is seen in his hospital bed with his wife Kelsey and daughter Chloe at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. Mills served two deployments to Afghanistan without a major injury, and then is a second an IED explosion changed everything. Today the 25-year-old is a quadruple amputee, one of only five servicemen from any military branch to have survived such an injury during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, is recovering and describes his situation plainly: I just had a bad day at work. His family _ especially his wife, Kelsey _ admires him for that. (AP Photo/Mills Family)
