On Veterans Day today, Red Border Films will present Healing Bobby, the latest project by TIME’s new documentary film unit. Directed by award-winning photojournalist Peter Van Agtmael, the film traces the life of Bobby Henline, an Iraq War veteran who sustained burns on more than a third of his body after his Humvee hit an Improvised Explosive Device outside of Baghdad. After two weeks in a coma and months of grueling rehabilitation, Henline turned to stand up comedy to help ease the pain, using his act to bring comfort to veterans suffering from PTSD and the families whose loved ones never made it back from war.
