Rescued POW to Become Teacher

Jessica Lynch is on her way to becoming a teacher. The American soldier who was held captive in Iraq and rescued in 2003, will graduate Friday from West Virginia University with a degree in education. The 28-year-old finished her student-teacher training at the same West Virginia elementary school she attended as a child. Lynch’s legs have not fully recovered from injuries she sustained as a prisoner of war in Iraq. She was kidnapped with five other soldiers when her company took a wrong turn in Nasiriyah in 2003.
