Jeff Bridges said, “I’m honored to support the Bob Woodruff Foundation. I’ve seen a few interesting places in my day – but nothing like this. This is Thunderdome meets Apocalypse Now. In 2006 when Bob was injured covering the war in Iraq, I was amazed he survived, and not only did he recover, he didn’t walk away from the troops he was covering. With his family’s support – he dedicated himself to helping service men and women who suffer from the visible and invisible scars of war.”
