Bobby Henline is a stand-up comedian and I’ll tell you, the guy’s HILARIOUS!
He’s also a veteran with one of the most incredible stories I’ve ever heard; This Desert Storm vet, re-enlisted after 911 and while on his 3rd tour in Iraq, he and his company were attacked – Bobby was the only survivor. After 2 weeks in a medically induced coma and 5 1/2 month hospital stay, Bobby, (after much encouragement from a nurse), decided to give comedy a try and it’s worked out because he’s funny as HECK!
Bobby’s new goal is to open “Biggie’s Burgers” in San Antonio, Texas! Biggie’s was started by Korean War veteran Richard Brown in San Clemente, California 25 years ago and has become world famous for it’s great food and friendly environment. Henline and Brown have designed a business plan to begin a veteran owned franchise!
This morning, I had Bobby on my show and he explained why this project is so important to him, “The whole concept is, ‘you teach a man to fish, you can feed him for life.’ I want to create a stable income, hire Veterans and then pay it forward by helping other Veterans own their own quick service restaurant.”
If you’d like to donate to this project, CLICK HERE and you’ll be sent to his GOFUNDME page!
My Uncle Frankie was a veteran and like many who wear our uniform during wartime, suffered from depression. I only wish he could have met Bobby, whose inspiring story reminded me that HOPE heals!
Thank you Bobby Henline for your service! #Salute!
