News Anchor Bob Woodruff returns to ABC

News Anchor Bob Woodruff returns to ABC with a documentary that follows his severe injury in Iraq and his ongoing recovery but also looks at the human cost of war. With body armor and modern medicine, the mortality rate is lower, but more and more of our soldiers are coming back having major injuries and permanent disfigurement.

On Monday Woodruff held a press conference and answered some questions. He appears to be about 90% back. When he was struck by the roadside bomb, he claims he had a brief out of body experience before slipping into a coma.

On the ABC News website there is a longer story and a video, both of which I recommend if you want to see what is involved in a case like Woodruff’s.
