Carnival Appoints Jessica Lynch as Ship Godmother
In a headline-grabbing move, Carnival Cruise Line announces that Jessica Lynch, the retired Army private whose dramatic rescue in Iraq has spawned everything from books to tele-movies, will serve as godmother of Carnival Miracle. The company's latest new-build, the 88,500-ton, 2,124-passenger Carnival Miracle is set to debut in Jacksonville, Fl. on February 27.

Lynch, a West Virginia resident who served in the army as a supply clerk, was part of the 507th Maintenance Company that was ambushed in Nasiriyah, Iraq, last March. She was rescued on April 1.

Carnival will make a contribution to the Jessica Lynch Foundation, which has been established to assist children of soldiers who have been killed on duty.
