REBOOT Recovery exists to help Veterans, First Responders and their families heal from the moral and spiritual wounds associated with service-related trauma, PTSD and prevention of suicide.
Enriching the lives of unhoused veterans and others by providing meals, mobile hot showers, clean clothes and kindness from our Jeep. According to Stacey Buckner, “Basic human kindness and decency - that is something we all deserve.” For Veterans suffering from PTSD as a result from trauma, to know that someone cares can prevent a Veteran from committing suicide.
Healing through finding what is STRONG with you. Forging Forward's ultimate goal is the elimination of suicide among our Veterans and First Responders with PTSD as a result from trauma. Also known as The Bobby Henline Foundation. See what helping others means to Bobby Henline.

"Those who fight monsters inevitably change. Because of all that they see and do, they lose their innocence, and a piece of their humanity with it. If they want to survive, they begin to adopt some of the same characteristics as the monsters they fight. It is necessary. They become capable of rage, and extreme violence.
There is a fundamental difference, however. They keep those monster tendencies locked away in a cage, deep inside. That monster is only allowed out to protect others, to accomplish the mission, to get the job done.....Not for the perverse pleasure that the monsters feel when they harm others. In fact, those monster tendencies cause damage...GUILT, ISOLATION, DEPRESSION, PTSD. There is a cost for visiting violence on others when you are not a monster.
Those who do so know one thing...The cost inflicted upon society as a whole is far greater without those who fight monsters. That is why they are willing to make that horrible sacrifice so that others may live peaceably.
Before you judge one of us, remember this...
We witness things that humans aren't meant to see...and we see them repeatedly. We perform the duties that you feel are beneath you. We solve your problems... Often by visiting violence upon others. We are found socially awkward in that we are always searching for what could be harmful. It renders us quiet, seen as a loner, and stoic with our dearest ones. Dropping our guard in any fashion is one of the most difficult things for us to do.
We run towards the things that you run away from. We go out to fight what you fear. We stand between you, and the monsters that want to damage you. You want to pretend that they don't exist, but we know better. We do the things that the vast majority are too soft, too weak, too cowardly to do.
Your life is more peaceful.....because of us.
The current socio/political climate in this country holds that there is nothing worth fighting for. Submission is the popular mantra. Warriors are decried, denigrated, and cast as morally inferior. We know how childish, how asinine, and how cowardly that mindset is.
We know this- There ARE things worth fighting, and dying for. We know that not every problem can be solved through rational discourse...that some problems can only be solved through the application of force and violence. And, while we do prefer the former....we are perfectly capable of the latter.
We believe that fighting what others fear is honorable, noble, and just....and are willing to pay the price for that deeply held belief. Why?
For us, it isn't a choice... It is what we are."

Brian was a Specialist in the US Army, KY National Guard, Company B, 1st Battalion, 149th Infantry Regiment. He served in Operation Enduring Freedom. I was told the plane Brian was flying in crashed just after take-off, killing the pilot, him, and the passenger. It was the most horrific day of my life. I had lost my only son. The air was sucked out of my entire body, my heart was broken, my soul black with mourning. What was supposed to be one of the most joyous days in Brian's life was destroyed in the blink of an eye.
Bravo748 is named in honor and remembrance of Brian – a beloved son, grandson, brother, nephew, cousin, uncle, firefighter, pilot, musician, friend, KY National Guardsman. Brian never knew a stranger, and his heart was filled with love for others, empathy, compassion, and kindness. He always had a smile. It is because of Brian that I truly understood what it meant to love another person, love America, appreciate our freedom, and have respect for all military active duty and veterans. The outpouring of friends, family, military, firefighters, and people we didn’t even know at the wake and funeral was tremendous. The funeral procession was 2 1/2 miles long.
For over three years, I was lost. I lost sense of my family, work, friends, absolutely everything – except my faith. My faith in Christ pulled me through, and my faith sustains me today. My healing does not end – it ebbs and flows. In those early days, I made a promise to Brian that I would make sure he was never forgotten. I had no idea how I was going to do that, but I knew a plan would be revealed in its own time.
Bravo748 has several different and personal meanings. Bravo is for Brian – a brave and daring young man who was always serving others. 748 represents several meanings: N748CH was the plane’s tail number; 7 represents Brian's and my lucky number and it represents a sign of divine perfection and completeness in the Bible; 4 represents Brian’s age on November 20 – he was 24 and 4 signifies direction – North, South, East, West, as well as up, down, left, right – I completely lost my sense of direction and time on the day Brian died; 8 represents infinity – I will love him forever, and in the Bible, 8 represents a new beginning.
In May 2016, I was fortunate to meet Bobby Henline, 4 tour Iraq/Afghanistan veteran. He was blown up by an IED on that 4th tour, burnt over 38% of his body – mostly his head, face, neck, and arm. Bobby came to Kentucky and worked with me in Operation Immersion for an entire week. After hearing his story of resilience, faith, and desire to want to help others, a plan was beginning to reveal itself. After attending a few events with Bobby and other wounded warriors, the plan became a work in progress. In July 2016, Bobby and I began working together to create a platform to highlight Veteran Speakers and Entertainers – those who want to continue giving back to their country. Veterans have important, inspirational, and educational messages to deliver – messages that will motivate people to change their thought processes, not be ashamed to reach out for help, and resources to deal with their own issues, and seek a goal of recovery. Veterans are also brilliant resources for business and industry – mission first, priorities get accomplished. Bravo748 Speakers Bureau was born August 2016.
Amazingly, Bravo748 has several different meanings between Bobby and me. Bravo, of course, is military for “B” – Bobby and Brian. 748 takes on even more significance: 4/7 is Bobby’s Live Day; 4/7 is my Birthday. 8 represents our infinite love of others and our own personal fight to not give up – we continue with new beginnings.
Bravo748 Speakers and Entertainers lay bare the pain in their souls to share their path to healing and encourage others to do the same. Life is for living. We can’t go backwards, even though we desperately want to.
My name is Jamie Burton and Brian is my son.
Brian, I love you forever.
Bravo748 works with event planners to book a motivational Speaker or Entertainer for their event. All of our Speakers and Entertainers are military or law enforcement veterans.
