In his first on-air reporting since being severely injured by a roadside bomb in Iraq last January, ABC News Anchor Bob Woodruff will tell the incredible story of his severe wounding and amazing but painstaking recovery over the past year. Through interviews with the ABC News team and soldiers with him on that fateful patrol, as well as the military and civilian medical teams who saved his life, we learn about Woodruff's journey from the battlefield in Iraq to Germany and finally home to the United States. To Iraq and back: Bob Woodruff Reports will air TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 27 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
In this special primetime documentary, Woodruff's wife, Lee, will talk for the first time about the gravity of her husband's medical condition and the impact on their family.
As part of the special, the Woodruffs return to Bethesda Naval Hospital for the first time since his six-week stay there to visit the doctors, nurses and staff that cared for Bob. From Bethesda, Woodruff reports on the stories of brave young soldiers and Marines who are learning to carry on despite life-altering injuries.
