When attached to Marine Air Control Squadron (MACS-1) in Yuma Arizona, Travis was deployed in January 2003 to Kuwait during the initial invasion of Iraq. In July of 2004, he was deployed to Iraq with MACS-1 where he received a Navy Achievement Medal for his accomplishments. While in Iraq, Travis volunteered and was accepted into the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) program where he received training to neutralize unexploded ordnance (UXO) and improvised explosive devices along with other disciplines. He was then deployed to Afghanistan in April 2011. He was injured while under fire near Kajaki Dam shortly before he was scheduled to return home.
