ROME, Maine (AP) — An Army veteran who lost all four limbs in an explosion in Afghanistan and opened a retreat in Maine for other injured veterans says he had an impromptu meeting with President Donald Trump at the White House.

Travis Mills posted pictures on Facebook on Monday of himself with Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.

Mills says he was meeting with the Republican vice president about his veterans retreat in Rome, Maine, when he got a chance to meet the president as well.

Mills' lakeside retreat was dedicated last month. It hosts combat-injured veterans and their families for free.

Mills says the retreat shows participants how they can continue to engage in recreational activities with their families. Fifty-six families are expected visit the camp this summer.
