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 during a prime-time report.
Through interviews with the ABC News team and soldiers who were 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 on Tuesday, Feb. 27 at 10:00 p.m. ET.
In this special 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.
The Woodruffs are also seen returning to Bethesda Naval Hospital for the first time since his six-week-long stay at the facility. They visit the doctors, nurses and staff that cared for Bob. From Bethesda, Woodruff also reports on the stories of brave young soldiers and Marines who are learning to carry on despite life-altering injuries.
Tom Yellin is the executive producer of "To Iraq and Back: Bob Woodruff Reports." Keith Summa and Gabrielle Tenenbaum are the producers. It is a production of The Documentary Group for ABC News.
