Heartbreaking, can you keep this soldier in your thoughts / prayers?

Afghanistan – A new video released by the Taliban shows Spc. Bowe Bergdahl, the only known U.S. serviceman held captive in Afghanistan, with bags under his eyes and what appears to be an abrasion on his left cheek.

The video — the fourth since 24-year-old Bergdahl of Hailey, Idaho, was captured nearly 18 months ago — was provided to reporters Wednesday by IntelCenter, a private, U.S.-based organization that tracks Islamic extremist activities and communications.

His parents, Bob and Jani Bergdahl, have declined to speak with reporters throughout the ordeal, but Idaho National Guard spokesman Col. Tim Marsano said Wednesday that they had confirmed that the man in the video was their son.

"They responded that it was him, based on the screen shots," Marsano said.

  • thats just horrible. it breaks my heart to see troops, especially soldiers get captured, injured and killed overseas. im a veteran and hearing things like that pisses me off. i hope that he gets home safely and i hope the Taliban gets captured. i will be glad when this war is over with. too many good people are getting killed for foolishness and the terrorists are going to keep doing the same things, so we need to bring our troops home.
