Seattle University: Bob Woodruff

Great Hall; enter on 8th Avenue

Civics



In January 2006, just after being named co-anchor of ABC News’ World News Tonight, Bob Woodruff was seriously injured by a roadside bomb while reporting in Iraq. Thirteen months later, Woodruff returned to ABC News with a documentary chronicling his traumatic brain injury, his painstaking recovery, and the plight of thousands of service members returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with similar injuries. In this event, Woodruff will speak about the needs of our nation’s veterans and their families, especially those of the post-9/11 era, many of whom are experiencing homelessness. Presented by the Seattle University Center for Strategic Communications’ Project on Family Homelessness.

Tickets are $5 at www.brownpapertickets.com

    It's makes me very proud as a Veteran to see Mr. Woodruff take a stand for us. I'm sad that he had to go through his experience. Nevertheless it's very sad for myself and my fellow Veterans to have to continue to fight within our own boarders for care and other benefits from our country we served so proudly. I will used my Internet radio station as a platform to provide programming that is needed in order to help my fellow Veterans and other causes that effects our community in a positive manner.
