The reality of war isn’t always front and center in our consciousness. The documentary Travis: A Soldier’s Story aims to change that as it delves into the life of United States Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills of the 82nd Airborne, a quadruple-amputee who lost portions of both arms and legs as a result of an IED while on his third tour of duty in Afghanistan. Tonight’s screening, presented by nonprofit Operation Warrior Wishes, benefits Mr. Mills, who’ll be on hand for a Q&A, and nonprofit Fotolanthropy, creators of the film. Note that the film is rated PG but not recommended for children under 13. A V.I.P. reception at Dave & Buster’s follows the screening.
