The True Story of PFC Lynch's Capture, as Told by Lynch

Private First Class Jessica Lynch, U.S. Army

Remember her "POW" story? Kinda fell down the "memory hole" a few years back, huh?

I needn't go into any great detail about girls in the military, need I? Let it suffice to say that it's a ridiculous trend.

Lynch continues to refute the "girl Rambo" stories of "shooting until her magazine ran out", when, in actuality, her gun jammed before she could fire a shot, as did several other soldiers' firearms that day.

Also, she was never shot, but had extensive injuries consistent with that of a car accident, likely caused by a collision with another U.S. vehicle when an RPG hit her truck.

The hospital where she was taken had not one enemy combatant, rather a team of nurses who tried to take her to the American lines, but were fired at until they turned back.

Lynch's unconsciousness prevents exact detail of what happened, but it is an oddity indeed that her story was twisted so.

Let this not diminish her amazing story, or the legitimacy of her injuries, as she served honorably; it is, simply put, a strange series of events.
