BOISE, Idaho - In the minutes after Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl was reported missing last June, his U.S. Army comrades in southern Afghanistan began searching bunkers, latrines, vehicles, even Afghan National Police posts in a nearby settlement.
About five hours later, search dogs were on the ground.
Meanwhile, radio operators were already intercepting messages indicating the worst: One of their own was in enemy hands.
These details are from leaked military documents about the war in Afghanistan that provide an unvarnished, eight-day window into the U.S. Army's hectic search for an Idaho Soldier captured by the Taliban.

There's a lot of detail in the article. It makes me wonder if the "leaked documents" are for real.
My hubby jokingly told son #3 before he left for Afghanistan to be sure and put a sign on his back that says “I get lost easily”. He was always getting lost driving around.
That’s our #1 biggest fear - him getting lost and the Taliban or AQ getting a hold of him.
We remember what happened to Jessica Lynch and her fellow troops. It’s a realistic concern. God bless your son and your family; we are so grateful. I pray Petraeus makes it safer for them.
Keep us posted!! My son gets lost easily as well.. but strangely enough can accurately navigate through many different video games... it’s just strange!
