    Story
    (5)

    On March 23, 2003, Private First Class Jessica Lynch was crossing the Iraqi desert with the 507th Maintenance Company when the convoy she was traveling in was ambushed, caught in enemy crossfire. All four soldiers traveling with her died in the attack. Lynch was taken prisoner and held captive in an Iraqi hospital for nine days. Her rescue galvanized the nation; she became a symbol of victory, of innocence and courage, of heroism; and then, just as quickly, of deceit and manipulation.

    Overall

    our soldiers made a terrible mistake, they were attacked, she could not perform her military duties and defend her comrades, her battle buddies die valiantly fighting the enemy and to save her life, she gets captured, the 75th Rangers (real heros) and other units risk their lives to rescue her, she goes home, she gets $$$$$$$$$$$$ for her story, she lives happily ever after, while 1000 is the current count, blames the Military for making her a hero but keeps the medals and money from movie and book deal. Books lesson, to be a money making hollywood Hero don't fight and die for your country, just get captured and let the non-heros risk their lives rescusing you. The book in a nutshell.

    Use the money for this book and support our soldiers!
