-- Jessica Lynch is going home.
The petite blonde prisoner of war became an American hero during her dramatic rescue from an Iraqi hospital. She is expected to be released from Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D-C next week.

A family spokesman says Lynch is "quite excited" about going home. On Tuesday she'll be flown by military medical helicopter to West Virginia, where she plans to make a brief first statement to the media.

She'll then travel by motorcade to her home in nearby Palestine. Lynch was captured during the height of the war with Iraq after her convoy was ambushed near the city of Nasiriyah (nah-sih-REE'-uh) on March 23rd.
