WAR: Private Lynch, Revisited

The Washington Post's revised account of the tale of Jessica Lynch is a bit less spectacular than its earlier story. But, really, if you forget the earlier version and read this with an open mind, you come away tremendously impressed with what she and her comrades in the 507th Maintenance Company went through, with the daring and devotion of the rescue team, and with the heroism of the Iraqi who passed the word that freed her.

The story is, essentially, Mogadishu all over again (although contrary to predictions, we only had one Mogadishu in this war). It's worth remembering again the sacrifices that entails.
