In our special Veterans Day show, MetroFocus speaks with Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills, one of only five quadruple amputees from the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts. He discusses his new book “Tough As They Come,” how he continues to overcome life’s challenges and physical barriers and why he became an advocate for veterans and amputees.

Plus, we follow television sound engineer Toba Potosky on his mission to re-open and restore the Brooklyn World War II memorial erected by New York City Parks Commissioner Robert Moses in 1951.
