TWO TOUGH RED RAIDERS:

ABC's Woodruff at work on book, special (Miami Herald, 10/25/06)

ABC's Bob Woodruff is working on a prime-time special and, with his wife, a book about his painstaking recovery since being seriously hurt by a roadside bomb in Iraq in January, the network said last week.

The ABC News special, expected to be Woodruff's first on-camera appearance since his injuries, is planned for next spring.

Woodruff will interview eyewitnesses and the medical team that saved his life on Jan. 29, the network said. He will also focus on the military's medical recovery teams and the stories of other injured soldiers from Iraq and their families. [...]

Random House will publish the memoir by Woodruff and his wife, Lee, as they discuss how their family was affected by the injury.


Mutual friends report that he's doing unbelievably much better than anyone would have imagined possible at the time of the attack.

He's supposed to be in even better condition.

I would feel better about this if he had even thought of the soldiers who saved him when it happened - he never even mentioned them or thanked them at the time. The networks acted as if their broadcast teams did it all themselves. At least now he is starting to think about them but when he was over there reporting he damned sure didn't seem to think they even mattered.

That's completely inaccurate as regards Bob Woodruff. I don't know about Vogt.
