Huffington Post senior military correspondent David Wood has received journalism's coveted Pulitzer Prize Monday for his coverage of severely wounded veterans and their families.
His 10-part series, "Beyond the Battlefield," explored facets of recovery that ranged from a severely scarred Army veteran who performs comedy to the challenges the military and Department of Veterans Affairs have to keep up with the amount of injured service members. He spent several months finding and meeting veterans and their families, often through referrals from other veterans.
Locally, our next door neighbor, Mountain View Patch has published a set of stories on U.S. Army Sergeant Brian Jergens severely wounded in Afghanistan and will soon write more on the wounded soliders that live at Moffett Field.
