Lynch Homecoming

Former P.O.W. Jessica Lynch is expected to return to her West Virginia home by the end of the month.

A family spokesman says doctors at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington say Lynch could be released in two weeks.

A hospital spokeswoman says doctors still have some tests to do before a release date is set. But the spokeswoman says Lynch is looking better and participating more in her treatments.

Lynch was part of the 507th Maintenance Company convoy that was ambushed near the Iraqi city of Nasiriyah in the early days of the war. Eleven soldiers from the convoy were killed. Lynch ended up in an Iraqi hospital, where she was rescued by U.S. special forces. Five others were captured and held apart from Lynch for three weeks before their release.
