HAILEY, Idaho – Friends and family of an Idaho soldier who was captured in Afghanistan prayed for his safe return Sunday, shaken by the image of the frightened young private in a Taliban video posted online.

Pfc. Bowe R. Bergdahl, 23, was serving with an Alaska-based infantry regiment earlier this month when he vanished, just five months after arriving in Afghanistan. He was serving at a base near the border with Pakistan in an area known to be a Taliban stronghold.

It would be awesome if everyone that reads this could say a prayer or send good vibes his way or whatever you do for this soldier....

  • clapping  You might want to save this post, because the applause is for you sweet.  The two of us disagree, but I knew in my heart that you were a nice person.  Kudos for you and your question.


    To answer the question, I have said a couple of prayers and I boo hooed when I watched the video of him.  May the Lord deliver him safely and swiftly back into the arms of his family.

  • I watched the video before logging on to cafemom. I really boo hooed being that this young man reminds me of my son in looks, just a bit older then my boy. My prayers are with him and his family. I suggest that we all send this in an email to our friends and family, the power of prayer is an amazing thing. Miracle do happen!
