From Yahoo News, American POW Leaves Iraq After Rescue: documents the capture and resuce of Jessica Lynch, a 19-year-old Army supply clerk:

The 507th was attacked March 23 during some of the earliest fighting in Nasiriyah, where Saddam’s Fedayeen loyalists and other Iraqi fighters are said to have dressed as civilians and ambushed Americans. Lynch fought fiercely and shot several enemy soldiers during the ambush. She fired her weapon after she had several gunshot wounds and kept firing until she ran out of ammunition, The Washington Post reported in Thursday’s editions. She watched several soldiers in her unit die and was stabbed when Iraqi forces closed in on her position, The Post quoted U.S. officials as saying. […] In Tuesday’s raid, U.S. forces engaged in a firefight on the way into and out of the hospital but there were no coalition casualties, Brooks said. […] “Some brave souls put their lives on the line to carry this out,” Brooks said.
