Who's who -- getting along to recovery: Jill Carol

Jill Carroll, recently freed in Iraq after nearly three months in captivity, was a former swimmer and water polo player at UMASS (Univ. of Mass.).

My wife got her undergrad degree from UMASS too.

News accounts said Carroll is in good health and told reporters that she was treated well by her captors, but said she did not know why she was kidnapped. Her release came a day after her twin sister, Katie, made a televised appeal for her freedom.

Carroll, 28, was abducted Jan. 7 in Baghdad while on assignment for The Christian Science Monitor.

Hope all is well with her and her family.
