Transcript for Bruce Springsteen joins ‘Stand Up for Heroes’ virtual benefit for veterans
Finally tonight here, our friend Bob woodruff and our wounded warriors, America strong. We will never forget when the news came in. Bob woodruff had been badly injured. It006, a roadside bomb, an ied hitting the convoy in Iraq. His long road to recovery. His children helping him with his words again. Buckle. Belt. Buckle. Belt buckle. You taught me! Belt buckle. His life's work ever since? Fighting for our wounded warriors. Bob, it's hard for me to believe that it's the 14th annual stand up for heroes and I know you really do this to this day because you remember the second chance you got all those years ago. It's true David, I'm lucky to be alive. I do say, sometimes my kids tell me that, you know, dad's -- part of you is better than it was before, but it's just great to have you here. There have been so many heroes. Corporal kionte storey a former marine. It's an honor to meet you. Thank you. On patrol with his marine unit in Iraq hit with an ied, his right leg severed below the knee. I tried to figure what just happened. And just really try to calm myself down. Determined to keep going, first rehappen, then running. R, reaching for the top. Climbing kilimanjaro. And tonight, right here with us again. Hey, David! Kionte telling us the pandemic has been hard on all of us especially veterans. It's a good time to reach out to veterans and remember those who served, remember those who fought and never forget. This is a really heavy time in our country and perhaps more important than ever that we remember our heroes coming home, because we can be distracted by so much of the noise and everything else that we're dealing with that what you're doing is even more important this year. It was really trying to help those who came back from the war Zones, the sand, and now we got veterans that are suffering through what many most Americans are suffering from, too, which is because of covid-19. There's a lot more hunger. And tonight, so many many coming together remotely. Bruce sprinsteen, Sheryl crow, prince Harry, to stand up for heroes. I've been proud to call you a friend for so many years, but I also understand I'm not the only one. I mean, Bruce Springsteen calls you a friend, prince Harry calls you a friend, and all of your friends come through really every year to help you do this. We've seen the really great side of people. See it differently in some ways when you're in need yourself, when you need someone else to help from the outside. You know, David, we see people that are very close to us remain there when something, some kind of crisis happens. You're one of those that's been by our side from the very beginning and it's been 15 years almost since this happened and I've got such close friends that were my close friends back then and still are today. No question about that. We'll being tonight, Bob. Give Lee a hug for us. Thanks, David. Bob and Lee's standup for heroes, 9:00 P.M. Eastern, ABC news and the Bob woodruff foundation website.
