Jessica Buchanan Commercial Flight Somalia, Jessica Buchanan is undergoing a process the U.S. Military calls phase two reintegration. Doctors are treating the 32 year old; helping her transition back to a life of freedom. It was early Wednesday when the same Navy Seals who killed Osama Bin Ladan, parachuted into Somalia where pirates were holding Buchanan.

The Seals killed all nine captors and rescued Buchanan and her Danish colleague, after three months in captivity. Today, their families issued a statement saying: “We are grateful for all the efforts that have been put into getting them safely back to us, and for the fact that a very difficult chapter in our lives is over.”

The next chapter for Buchanan will have its challenges. She suffered kidney problems during captivity. The Ohio native will also have to overcome the trauma she experienced.

CBS 60 Minutes’ Bob Simon was held captive during the Gulf War and freed after 40 days in Iraqi prisons.

“Your head is in a million places and none of them are good and you shouldn’t get back to real life right away because you have no idea what’s going on with you.”

Buchanan is free to leave Italy whenever she wants, and she’ll fly back to the U.S. in a military aircraft. But for now, she’s staying put.

Her father has plans to visit her this weekend; happy she’s one step closer to home.
