    DUPONT, Wash. - A Kent woman says she cannot thank the soldiers, doctors and nurses at JBLM's Madigan Army Medical Center enough for helping her through the most traumatic experience of her life. 

    Laura Vaughns was in the seventh car when the Amtrak Cascades passenger train derailed Monday. She was knocked unconscious when the train left the tracks. 

    Vaughns was hospitalized at Madigan for two days. During her stay, she saw the story KIRO 7 did on the JBLM soldiers and medical staff who jumped into action the second the train derailed. 

    Today, Vaughns is sharing her message for them only with KIRO 7's Joanna Small. Watch on-air at 5:30 p.m. or at this link.
