I haven't been blogging much about the war, obviously, but this news is too cool to pass up: Private First Class Jessica Lynch, 19, from Palestine, West Virginia, was rescued from a hospital in the southern Iraqi city of Nassiriya by a special operations team of U.S. Army Rangers, Navy SEALs, Marines and Air Force combat pilots. The rescued soldier had been missing since the ambush of an Army maintenance company 10 days ago in southern Iraq. Several bodies were also recovered, some of which are thought to be those of American service people.
M4d props to the spec forces guys who pulled off this daring rescue, and our best wishes to PFC Lynch for a speedy recovery.
Oh, and I agree with CalPundit and Virginia Postrel: It's "Private Lynch," not "Jessica."
