  1. Thank you for your post on this young solider captured. My niece, 19 years old then, was stationed in Afghanistan at the beginning of the Iraq war. I ran to church to cry & pray the day I heard she was being shipped out.

    The Lord is reminding me everyday to pray for PFC Bowe Bergdahl & his family back home. My prayers are always with our fellow Americans serving in uniform during wartime efforts.

    We need to take Ling's & Lee's secured release by President Clinton as an encouragement that the right leaders are doing all they can behind the scenes to bring PFC Bergdahl home too. I remember the long wait with no news when the first military men & women were captured in Iraq. The rescue had to be kept secret. I pray the same type of rescue mission is planned for not only PFC Bergdahl but the hiker's detained in Iran.

    Thanks again for your post.
