The head of the non-profit USA Cares will be featured on a national morning show Thursday.

Bill Nelson, executive director of USA Cares, will appear on “Good Morning America” to discuss the organization and its work with soldiers who have post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injuries.

“Good Morning America” airs from 7 to 9 a.m. on ABC.

USA Cares, which is based in Radcliff, serves wounded soldiers and their families as well as the financial needs of families who have members deployed.

The interview came about after ABC contacted USA Cares to help the network find a disabled Iraq War veteran to appear in a role on the soap opera “All My Children,” said John Revell, a spokesman for USA Cares.

The interview was taped two weeks ago. Nelson was interviewed by Lee Woodruff, the wife of Bob Woodruff, a former anchor of ABC News’ “World News Tonight” who suffered head injuries while embedded in Iraq.
