US Army Private First Class Jessica Lynch was carried on a stretcher off a C-17 military plane at the US air base in Ramstein, Germany, on April 3, 2003. Lynch was rescued by US Special Forces more than a week after she and other members of her unit were captured in Iraq.
Lynch had been captured along with five others after the 507th Maintenance Company took a wrong turn and came under attack in Nasiriyah on March 23, 2003. Eleven of her fellow soldiers died.
