Wounded warrior ready for love

It's was the perfect opportunity to sell yourself and Justin Lane took advantage. 
 
Thursday night was a chance for singles to get matched up, though convincing anyone how much he's overcome to get where he is today wouldn't take much. 
 
"When I was in the army, I was a combat engineer and that title is..it's a very dangerous job. So I would search for the IEDs while I was over there, so I got blown up three times and the last one actually penetrated my truck and took off my legs," said Lane. 
 
Twenty-five year old Lane says he's ready for that now.
 
Before he was deployed to Kandahar, Afghanistan, he was married.
 
But when he came back injured in 2011, "I was on a lot of meds that messed with my mind so that being said , it just really destroyed my marriage when I was on those meds but now I'm not on one," Lane said.
 
Feeling settled into his new lifestyle, Lane is ready for his next journey.
 
"I eventually want to be one of those names that when someone says my name, everyone knows who they're talking about," Lane told ABC2.
 
The music, which started off as an outlet, has turned into his dream job. He's working on a pop rock album he plans on releasing by July. 
 
"When someone tells me I can't do something, I'm going to do it and when they tell me it's impossible, I'm going to show them nothing's impossible," Lane said.
