It's a short story on Jessica Lynch on msn:

I thought it would be ok to post since it is such a positive story. I know we were all so worried about this girl and were all praying for her - She is such a hero - and I cannot thank God enough for her safe return.

That is really great that she was rescued but it is sad that none of the other men were rescued. I can't even begin to imagine what she went through. I have been hearing from a lot of the soldiers here that her and the other POWs captured gave the Iraqis all the information they knew that they should not have told. I know she was under intese torture but still POW's should not give any info that they know. I'm not saying this is fact, just what I have been hearing all over up here. That is one reason that I believe women do not belong anywhere near the fighting lines because of stuff like this and people flipping out because a woman was injured or killed or whatever. I'm sad to say that I don't think this kind of attention would be given if she was a man. But I am glad she is alive and safe now. I'm sorry if I have offended anyone but this is how I feel. Please don't think that I for one minute do not support our soldiers because I do and do I feel that women should be allowed in the military, I just don't think they should fight because of the way it's reacted to if something does happen to them. But she is still in my thoughts and prayers as is every other soldier here and out there.
