    Capt. Jennifer Harris was a Marine Corps helicopter pilot who flew rescue missions in Iraq. She was from Swamscott MA.
    She was flying one such rescue mission when her chopper was shot down. It was to have been her last mission in Iraq. She was scheduled to go home the next day to her next assignment - a ROTC instructor. Georgetown, I think. We saw a CNN program on her on Memorial Day.
    She really was quite a remarkable person.
