JEFFERSON, Maine (AP) - A non-profit organization led by a soldier who was critically wounded in Afghanistan will host six veteran families in Maine this summer.

Travis Mills founded the Travis Mills Project - National Veterans Family Center as a way to help serve the recreational and reintegration needs of combat-wounded veterans and their families. Mills, a retired army staff sergeant, lost portions of both legs and arms when an improvised explosive device exploded while he was on a routine patrol.

Mills’ organization will welcome the six families to Camp Kieve-Wavus on the shores of Damariscotta Lake in Jefferson, Maine from Aug. 25-29. Mills and his family are moving to Maine this summer.
