You may remember last year Disney announced a company-wide Heroes Work Here initiative to hire, train and support returning veterans. Last month they announced the next effort in this initiative, the first ever “Veterans Institute” workshop at Walt Disney World Resort designed for companies of all sizes to learn how to support and recruit military veterans.
On January 29, 2006, while reporting on U.S. and Iraqi security forces, Bob was seriously injured by a roadside bomb that struck his vehicle near Taji, Iraq. In February 2007, just 13 months after being wounded, he returned to ABC News with his first on-air report, “To Iraq and Back: Bob Woodruff Reports.”
Bob and his wife, Lee, co-wrote a bestselling memoir, In An Instant, chronicling his injuries in Iraq and how their family persevered through a time of intense trauma and uncertainty. The Woodruff family established the Bob Woodruff foundation to raise money to assist injured service members, veterans and their families.
“Returning veterans need tools and opportunities in order to move onto the next chapter in their lives. I’m pleased to participate in an event that enables companies to reach out to these heroes so that they can thrive after they return home,” Bob said.
