Bob Woodruff was the embedded correspondent for ABC's World News Tonight when on location in Taji, Iraq-2006, his vehicle was struck by a roadside bomb and he suffered a serious traumatic brain injury nearly killing him.  He's had a long, but miraculous, recovery and will be sharing with our community what that journey has looked like, how it encouraged him and his wife, Lee, to start the Bob Woodruff Foundation to support our returning veterans, and how his role in journalism has helped many veterans and their families by shedding light on their stories.
