It’s hard to ignore the power of a man who can garner the attention of the Pentagon’s top brass, media’s most influential voices…and Elmo: Bob Woodruff is the man with that prowess. Woodruff, who is an award winning television journalist, is perhaps most recently remembered for his trip to Iraq in 2006 to report from the war zone when he was critically injured by a roadside bomb. Woodruff explains that the experience forever changed him and that it was this feeling of comradery with soldiers who were injured similarly that drove him to start the Bob Woodruff Foundation.
