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.
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.
A source close to his parents, Bob and Jani Bergdahl, said they are thankful to know he is alive and are waiting to hear from the White House about what officials expect to do to free him.
Nearly three years after finding out their son was taken hostage by enemy forces in Afghanistan, Idaho residents Bob and Jani Bergdahl say they don't think the government is working hard enough to bring Bowe home.
