WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The father of rescued U.S. Army soldier Jessica Lynch lavished praise and thanks on Wednesday on the U.S. special troops who stormed into an Iraqi hospital and took his injured daughter to safety.
"We are just real proud that they risked their lives to go in and save our daughter and we hope all the rest of the troops come home safely too," said Greg Lynch in an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America" from his home in Palestine, West Virginia.
I know the news broke late yesterday but I just wanted say how glad I am that she was found. The troops are really doing a great job and one can see how well they are trained.
