Jessica Lynch, Jessica Dawn Lynch (born April 26, 1983) is a former Private First Class (PFC) in the United States Army Quartermaster Corps. Lynch served in Iraq during the 2003 invasion by U.S. and allied forces. On March 23, 2003 she was injured and captured by Iraqi forces but was recovered on April 1 by U.S. Special Operations Forces, with the incident subsequently receiving considerable news coverage. Lynch’s was the first successful rescue of an American POW since World War II and the first ever of a woman.
Initial media reports on Lynch’s recovery in Iraq were incorrect. Lynch, along with major media outlets, faults the U.S. government for creating the story as part of the Pentagon’s propaganda effort. Jim Wilkinson is credited for fabricating the government narrative.
On April 24, 2007, she testified in front of Congress that she had never fired her weapon; her M16 rifle jammed, as did all weapons systems assigned to her unit, and she had been knocked unconscious when her vehicle crashed.
