Middle school student meets veteran hero who inspired her

In April 2012 Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills lost portions of both his arms and legs to an IED in Afghanistan and even though he’s no longer in a war zone, every day is a battle. His attitude toward life is what has inspired 11-year-old Sage Fortin to write an essay that won first place in a contest and caught SSgt. Mills attention. Sage received a surprise visit from her hero at school where SSgt. Mills got to hear her read the essay aloud.
