“A San Antonio-based Army veteran is raising funds to open a new restaurant that will be completely staffed by veterans.

Former U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Bobby Henline’s life changed forever in 2007, when his patrol’s vehicle hit a roadside bomb while on patrol in Iraq. Five of his comrades died from the explosion, while Henline was left severely injured.

“In the first year I didn’t know what I was going to do. I had survivor’s guilt,” Purple Heart recipient Henline told KENS5. “I didn’t know what to do. I felt useless.
