News anchor Bob Woodruff, severely wounded by a bomb in Iraq last year, is back to work as an ABC correspondent and has launched a new career as an advocate for wounded soldiers, particularly those with head injuries. A charity concert he helped organized, featuring Bruce Springsteen and Robin Williams, is expected to raise $1 million next month, the Times reports.
It's been a long road back for Woodruff, 46, who has a plastic plate in his head and spent 36 days in a coma after the bombing. It took him months of therapy to recall simple words like "scissors." But he's back on the job again and recently traveled to Syria and Angola. “You can see why I think every day now is a free day,” Woodruff said.
