(Landstuhl, Germany-AP) -- After all she's endured -- former prisoner of war Jessica Lynch had a big smile on her face when she was reunited with her parents and siblings today.
The reunion took place at a U-S military hospital in Germany, where the 19-year-old supply clerk is recovering from serious wounds suffered when her unit was ambushed in Iraq.
Military officials say Lynch's parents, two siblings and a cousin made two brief visits after arriving from West Virginia today. The hospital says Lynch had "a big smile on her face."
Lynch is in stable condition with injuries to her head, spine, both her legs, her right arm, her right foot and ankle. Some of the wounds are from gunshots. She was rescued last week in a daring raid.
