Today, US Army SGT Bowe Bergdahl was released from captivity.  SGT Bergdahl was held as a prisoner of war for nearly five years.

SGT Bergdahl was handed over by the Taliban Saturday evening in an area of eastern Afghanistan, near the Pakistani border. Officials said the exchange was not violent and the 28-year-old SGT was in good condition and able to walk.

SGT Bergdahl was the only American Soldier held prisoner in Afghanistan.  His release from captivity was in exchange for the release of five Afghan detainees from the US prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Our nation rejoices with the Bergdahl family at the news of his safe release. Please pray for SGT Bergdahl and his family as they celebrate his freedom and safe return.
