Bobby Henline

A veteran of Desert Storm by age 19, Bobby Henline was inspired to re-enlist in the Army after the attacks on September 11, 2001. He deployed to Iraq three times, twice with the 82nd Airborne Division and once with the 3rd Armored Calvary regiment. He spent 13 years in the Army. While on his fourth tour in Iraq on April 7, 2007, an improvised explosive device (IED) blast blew up his Humvee. Of the five men in the vehicle, Bobby was the only survivor. Burns covered 40% of his body, bones in his face and shoulders were fractured, and his head was burned to the skull. Put into a medically induced coma for two weeks, he was flown back to the United States. During his initial six-month hospital stay, Bobby remained upbeat, positive, and relied on humor to get him through each day. Today, he continues his quest to make people laugh in a variety of venues by doing stand-up comedy. Bobby also presents at various military and military-related organizations to inspire soldiers, veterans, and their families, spreading his message of life, love, and joy.
