The U.S. Army has identified the man shown captured in a video filmed by the Taliban in Afghanistan as an American soldier. The military mentioned that his name was Pte Bowe Bergdahl. He is 23 years old and belongs to Ketchum, Idaho. He was captured by the Taliban from a U.S. military base near the Pakistani border last month.
In the video, which was released on the internet, he urged the U.S. government to bring the American soldiers home where they have their homes. He also said that he was very scared and it's unnerving to be a prisoner.
Following is an excerpt of that video.
The Pentagon said that they are trying their best to release the captured soldier and bring him back home safely.
