POW Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl still held captive by terrorist network

Last night, while the world toasted "farewell" to 2013, U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl remained a prisoner of war, held somewhere in Southeast Asia.

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was captured in Afghanistan by the Taliban-aligned Haqqani network in June of 2009.

Reports have varied over the years, but authorities have reason to believe Sgt. Bergdahl is being held in Pakistan, or perhaps being moved about between the two countries.

Officially, Sgt. Bergdahl is listed by the Department of Defense as DUSTWUN: Duty status-whereabouts unknown.

He has been issued the Prisoner of War Medal.

The U.S. government has always believed that Sgt. Bergdahl is alive; a belief supported by five videos that the terrorist network has released in an attempt to negotiate a ransom of $1 million dollars, plus the release of more than 20 Afghan prisoners.

Sgt. Bergdahl was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, Fort Richardson, Alaska, and has been promoted twice since his disappearance in Paktika Province, Afghanistan.

The United States government refuses to negotiate with terrorists but continues to work on all levels, to bring Sgt. Bergdahl home safely.
