This is every parent or loved one's nightmare when their kids are in the Service. It' a relief to know they are still alive, and don't know what they are going through, are they being tortured or if they will die a horrible death such as beheading.

My prayers are with him and his family.

@Mary_Ellen, I don't know what to say, except you're right, it's every parent's worse nightmare.

The Taliban wants us out of there and for us to release prisoners from Guantanamo, and of course a heft ransom.

I once had hopes that when Obama got elected our troops would come home. Now I am of course disappointed to say the least.

I hope that Pvt. Bowe (Bo) from Idaho gets released or rescued ASAP.
