Hague to observe Memorial Day

The Woodruff family also established the Bob Woodruff Family Foundation for Traumatic Brain Injury to raise money to assist members of the military with cognitive rehabilitation and care following a traumatic brain injury suffered in service to their country.

Since returning to the air, Woodruff has reported from around the globe.

In July 2008, Woodruff began anchoring Focus Earth, a weekly eco-newscast for Planet Green.

Before becoming a journalist, Woodruff was an attorney. In 1989, while teaching law in Beijing, he was hired by CBS News to work as a translator during the Tiananmen Square uprising, and a short time later he changed careers, becoming ABC's Justice Department correspondent in Washington in the late 1990s.

Woodruff has a law degree from the University of Michigan Law School and a bachelor's from Colgate University.

He and his wife have four children.
