Face Off! War Hero Who Helps Veterans With PTSD Dares Dem Governor, ‘I’m Not Going To…’ (VIDEO)
Staff Sergeant Travis Mills is a quadruple amputee who lost his arms and legs after a roadside bomb blew him up.
He is an American hero and has overcome an incredible amount of odds.
He has also started a camp in Maine where veterans and their families can stay for free while being treated for PTSD. Mills is not a Republican or a Democrat and during his appearance on Fox, he said this isn’t about politics, its about surviving.
Mills said that the coronavirus pandemic has hurt him in three ways, he’s a motivational speaker so he can’t speak to groups, he owns for-profit lodge and marina, and his fundraisers have been canceled for his nonprofit.
Democrat Governor Janet Mills (no relation) has extended her stay at home order despite the State of Maine only having 56 Mainers have died out of 1,152 confirmed COVID-19 cases. The Governor claims she is afraid that Maine will end up like New York City however, most of the state is rural.
The Governor also took the Sunday River Brewing Company’s liquor and operating license on Friday after they defied her order and opened the restaurant to the public. That move has caused protestors to gather at the state capitol.
NBC Maine reports:
Republican groups and some business groups have been complaining this week after Mills announced her four-step plan to gradually ease restrictions and get more businesses open again. Critics claim the Governor’s plan will damage Maine’s economy because it takes far too long to reopen businesses. The plan is particularly worrisome to many tourist businesses.
“I have people frightened to death (that) their life and livelihoods will be gone,” said GOP state Senator Robert Foley of Wells.
The plan doesn’t allow restaurants and hotels to reopen until June 1, and even then says hotels should be for Maine residents only. Mills has continued the current 14-day self-quarantine requirement for anyone traveling into Maine from out of state, saying that should remain through most of the summer. Tourist businesses say that it will be disastrous for their industry. Foley says he has heard from a lot of them. He said he was so frustrated that he fired off a highly critical letter to Governor Mills on Thursday, and put it on Facebook, where he says it “went viral.”
Folks here are trying to force Gov. Mills to change her mind and take away some of the restrictions in place so they can open their small businesses back up. #NEWSCENTERmaine pic.twitter.com/2tfaRKSl0r
