Injured ABC journalists return to USA -- UPDATE

by Anna Johns, posted Feb 1st 2006 8:56AM
World News Tonight anchorman Bob Woodruff and cameraman Doug Vogt arrived in the United States last night and are being treated at National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. ABC says it considered moving the men to a private hospital but decided against it since the military doctors have experience treating victims of bombings. The picture at the right is of soldiers loading Woodruff on transport that would take him to a C-17 military plane in Germany. You can see from all the medical instruments, his injuries are very serious. Woodruff's family reports that he was hit in the face and brain with shrapnel when the Iraqi military vehicle he and Vogt were riding in hit a roadside bomb just outside Baghdad, Iraq over the weekend. Vogt, on the other hand, is reportedly in much better condition. He was laughing and making jokes while at the hospital in Germany, whereas Woodruff could barely open his eyes.

For Anchor man Woodruff and Vogt.
My prayers are with you both and your families as you go thru this difficult time, but know that the Lord is there helping you cope through your pain and suffering. God bless you both
My prayers also go out to all of our military personnel in Iraq and their families. I pray that soon
all of our soldiers will be coming home and proud that
they went to fight for our country.It breaks my heart that we have to lose one of our brave men and know the
stress the families must be going thru also.
GOD BLESS AMERICA and each of you.
