The family of the lone known U.S. prisoner of war says it's "cautiously optimistic" about reported renewed efforts by President Barack Obama's administration to win his freedom.
An empty chair on display at a Veterans Day ceremony in Twin Falls, Idaho, on Monday symbolized the costs military families face when loved ones have been killed or declared missing in action.
The Pentagon's two top leaders said Thursday the Obama administration is working to secure the freedom of a U.S. soldier taken prisoner three years ago in Afghanistan, despite an impasse in talks to trade him for Taliban prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Army Spc. Bowe Bergdahl, the only known U.S. soldier held captive in Afghanistan, appears briefly in a newly released Taliban video standing next to a smiling insurgent commander who once threatened to kill him.
"I can assure you we're doing everything in our power to find and locate [their son]," he said, adding that a 4-foot by 3-foot poster of Sgt. Bergdahl sits next to a podium at U.S. Central Command headquarters in Tampa, Fla., "to remind us every day that he remains missing in action."
