Ahead in the CNN Newsroom...

ABC News anchor Bob Woodruff was badly hurt when a roadside bomb struck his vehicle while reporting in Iraq in 2006. Now he and his wife Lee are raising funds for injured service members, vets and their families. It's an interview you don't want to miss.

Taryn Davis was just 23 when her husband will killed in Iraq. She's turned her grief into the "American Widow Project" - widows helping widows cope with the devastating loss of their loved ones. She joins us in the 8 o'clock hour.

And former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick is back home in Virginia to serve the last two months of his 23-month sentence. He pleaded guilty in 2007 to a federal charge of bankrolling a dogfighting operation. Vick was also ordered to pay almost a million bucks to rehab more than 50 of his fighting pitbulls. We'll tell you how they're doing.

Join TJ Holmes and Alina Cho in for Betty Nguyen in the CNN Newsroom, beginning 6am ET, 3am PT.

    Im so glad that Bob Woodruff first of all is doing ok since the bombing in Iraq, I prayed all the time for him. Also its great that he and his wife are raising funds for injured vets and their families, you cant hear anything better than that. Shoutout to Taryn Davis for the "American Widow Project" that she put together it truly is hard to accept that the one you loved died in a time of war, so we thank you Ms. Davis, you are a strong woman. Finally in closing, I want to say that Michael Vick has served his time and paid his dues, if football is what he knows he should be allowed to play again after receiving a stern warning from the NFL that if he commits the same crime again he should then be banned from the NFL forever. I do think after an embarrasing moment that Michael Vick has learned his lesson.

    I'm an "off and on" pet owner. I'm a fan of football. I'm also a believer that no matter what the crime - if you do the time - you should be given an opportunity to reform a previously bad behavior. Granted Mick Vick is a former NFL draw - why he is being held to a higher standard of "payback" and retribution is totally biased and unfair. Leave the young man alone and let him get his life and profession back in order.

    Cheers,
