Before leaving Germany, Lt. Colonel Peter Sorini spoke with Vogt. “I asked him if he was ready to go to Bethesda and he said he was from Paris and he preferred to go home, so I sort of sense that he had a bit of a sense of humor,” Soroni said. Woodruff hasn’t spoken, but Soroni said he “started to wake up more, move his arms and legs.”

> “The Navy medical center has specialized equipment that can treat penetrating head wounds, according to hospital spokeswoman Ellen Maurer,” the AP says.
