Springsteen Stands Up For Heroes

The Beacon Theatre has become the location of choice for a lot of the premier entertainment events in the Big Apple. November 3 it adds another as Bruce Springsteen, Jerry Seinfeld and Tony Bennett gather on the stage at the Beacon for the annual Bob Woodruff Foundation Stand Up For Heroes salute to service members and their families.  The organization has managed to bridge the divide of partisan politics by enlisting all living presidents in its cause. The event falls in the middle of the five day New York Comedy Festival, a series of performances sponsored by Comedy Central, the network that hosts Stewart's Daily Show.  The Woodruff Foundation was founded to honor the late newsman by drawing attention and dollars to aid returning veterans that suffer from what are called the 'hidden injuries' of war, things like Traumatic Brain Injury, Post Traumatic Stress and combat induced depression.
