Injured vet to speak at Thursday event
Army Staff Sgt. Bobby Henline sustained burns over 38 percent of his body when the Humvee he was riding in was blown apart by a bomb in April 2007 in Iraq. The other soldiers in the vehicle died.
Henline has had more than 40 surgeries, including removal of his left hand. His sense of humor has helped him to recover, and he will perform in Las Vegas in July.
The comedian and motivational speaker will entertain at a free, public event at 7 p.m. Thursday in the auditorium at Papillion-La Vista High School, 402 E. Centennial Road in Papillion.
Free child ID kits available Friday
Employees of Check ’n Go, 7408 N. 30th St., will distribute free child ID kits and child safety information from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday. They will work with parents to fill out the information and take pictures of children to include in the kits.
Nationwide, the company is teaming up with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children on this project.
An estimated 800,000 children a year are reported missing in the United States. A prepared child ID kit can help law enforcement officers find children.
