It’s not easy hard to find a veteran who has survived a devastating explosion and is still an inspiring person. Meet Bobby Henline.
The explosion killed every other soldier in the vehicle and burned more than 38 percent of his body. The physical and emotional scars will not leave him till the rest of his life.
“I was in the lead vehicle. I remember nothing from that day, except my morning coffee.”
Within 72 hours, the staff sergeant was inside the specialized burn unit at Fort Sam Houston in Texas – where he began a long and painful treatment process, lost part of his left arm to amputation as well.
Today, nine years and 40-plus surgeries later, the 44-year-old is opening a restaurant that is supposed to employ other veterans and serve the community.
“I’m trying to give back. I think this is a great way to do it, through empowerment and food.”
He is now in the process of raising capital to fund the restaurant, he needs between $130,000 and $300,000
