Bob Woodruff

Bob Woodruff’s enduring gratitude for the sacrifices made by our nation’s service members will always be the spirit behind the Foundation. On Jan. 29, 2006, while reporting on U.S. and Iraqi security forces for ABC’s “World News Tonight,” he was seriously injured by a roadside bomb that struck his vehicle near Taji, Iraq.

In February 2007, just 13 months after being wounded, he returned to ABC News with “To Iraq and Back: Bob Woodruff Reports.” Since then, he has reported from around the globe for the network.

While not engaged in the daily operations of the Bob Woodruff Foundation, Bob—through his reporting and speaking engagements—pushes to bring the stories of those who serve to the forefront of public consciousness, encouraging us all to take a stand for heroes.
