Quadruple amputee undergoes surgery after Afghanistan blast

An Army soldier who lost his arms and legs during his third tour in Afghanistan last week underwent surgery Monday as supporters from around the globe offer prayers and messages of hope on a family website.

Army Staff Sgt. Travis Mills, of Vassar, Mich., was injured when he stepped on an IED April 10 while serving with the 82nd Airborne in Afghanistan as part of Operation Enduring Freedom. He is recuperating at a hospital in Germany and hopes to return stateside on Tuesday, three days after his 25th birthday, his father told FoxNews.com.

“He’s in a tremendous amount of pain right now, but he’s sleeping,” Dennis Mills said. “But as far as I’m understanding, his vitals are good. But it’s still early.”
