Travis is a Staff Sergeant in the Army and is part of the legendary 82nd Airborne Division based out of Fort Bragg NC. This past February, Travis was deployed to Afghanistan for what was to be his third tour of duty there.

January 9th 2012 will mark the 151st anniversary of what some have said were the real opening shots of the American Civil War. It was on this day that the merchant ship Star of the West sailed into Charleston Harbor with the intent of delivering Federal troops and supplies to Fort Sumter. But before reaching her destination, the Star of the West attracted a volley of cannon fire from nearby South Carolinian forces at Morris Island and Fort Moultrie. The ship retreated with minor damage, and returned to New York without accomplishing her mission.
