David Wood talked about the ten-part series he authored for Huffington Post, “Beyond the Battlefield: The War Goes on for the Severely Wounded,” for which he won the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for national reporting. He described spending over nine months interacting with severely wounded veterans from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and recounted interviews with soldiers' families, military surgeons, combat medics, therapists, nurses and others at treatment facilities across the country. His goal was to share the struggles of everyday life for the severely wounded. The prize-winning series was released as a Huffington Post e-book and is available online. In this interview Mr. Wood also discussed his early years covering wars, including his receiving the Gerald R. Ford Journalism award for distinguished reporting on national defense.
David Wood has worked at Politics Daily, and has written for the Baltimore Sun, Time Magazine, the Newhouse News Agency, and the Los Angeles Times. close
