Travis Worrell


On May 4, 2012, Army SPC Travis Worrell, a combat medic with the 1st Battalion, 41st Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Armored Division, was severely injured when his unit came under fire in Afghanistan.

While he was engaging in a firefight with Taliban soldiers a rocket-propelled grenade exploded a few feet behind him.

He took shrapnel to his neck, back, and shoulder, and sustained a partial C6/C7 spinal cord injury which left him a quadriplegic.

Travis and his wife received their smart home in San Antonio, Texas on December 23, 2018.
