Injured Iraqi Girl Leaves U.S. and Heads Home

   A two year old Iraqi girl who had a heart defect repaired in a Tennessee Hospital, has returned to her family in Iraq.  More than three months ago, two marine reservists from the Montgomery based Lima Company came across little Amina.  They discovered she had a heart defect.  That heart defect meant she only had about six months to live. 

   Major Kevin Jarrard spearheaded the effort to bring Amina to Vanderbilt University's Children Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee.  With his help and the rest of the Montgomery based unit, Amina underwent a successful surgery.

   She is now back in Haditha with her family.

   If you would like to see video of Amina's return home and the way she has changed the war for her family and the marines, click on the link below.
