Mike Rowe calls meeting quadruple amputee, Vassar veteran Travis Mills a 'gut check'
VASSAR, MI — Mike Rowe was at The Science and Engineering Festival in Washington, D.C., a few weeks ago, when a fan asked to meet him.
The host of the former Discovery Channel show "Dirty Jobs" agreed, even though he was rushing to get through a crowd as he headed backstage. The fan was retired Army Staff Sgt. Travis Mills, a Vassar native and one of five American soldiers to survive a quadruple amputation.
