Once Seriously Injured In Iraq, Woodruff Returns

woodruff.jpgTVNewser has word today that ABC NewsBob Woodruff has returned to Iraq for the first time since he was seriously wounded by a roadside bomb in January 2006.

According to Woodruff, who posted a note on the World News’ daily blog earlier today, he has returned with “different parameters” than his previous trips to the Middle East. (The trip on which he was injured was his seventh to Iraq, he said.)

“I will stay on the US military bases without going out on the streets or battle zones like I have in the past,” Woodruff said. “I owe this not only to myself, but to my family, friends, colleagues and my new ‘brothers and sisters’ also injured in the war whose stories I have been reporting since I’ve returned.”

When we spoke to Woodruff earlier this year at an event for the charity he and his wife Lee Woodruff started, Remind.org, he told us he was no longer covering wars. Although he did admit, “I’m addicted to in-depth pieces and international stories.”
