Nowadays, it is hard to discover someone as durable and inspiring at Booby Henline, a veteran who endured a disastrous explosion in 2007.
The terrible incident eliminated the rest of the guys in his Army lorry in Iraq, and burned more than 38 percent of his body. He will be left with the physical and psychological scars of that event for the rest of his life.
” I was in the lead vehicle,” Henline recalls. “The only thing I keep in mind is having coffee that early morning.”
Within 72 hours, the personnel sergeant was inside the specialized burn system at Fort Sam Houston in Texas. That is where he started a long and uncomfortable treatment process, and lost part of his left arm to amputation.
Today, after 9 years and 40-plus surgeries, the 44-year-old has made it his mission to show his appreciation by opening a dining establishment that will use other veterans and serve the neighborhood.
” I’m aiming to return,” Henline told reporters at INDIVIDUALS. “This is a great method to do it, through empowerment and food.”
Henline is in the process of raising capital to money the restaurant, and is requesting for in between $130,000 and $300,000 thousand. He has already raised tens of countless dollars on his GoFundMe page.
