Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan War)
On July 1, 2009, US Army soldier SGT (then a PFC) Bowe R. Bergdahl, 23, of Ketchum, Idaho, was declared missing, which was later changed to captured
on July 3 of that year. A video was shown of him on July 18, 2009 indicating that he had been captured. A second video was released on December 25,
2009, again showing him in captivity. On April 7, 2010, the Taliban released a third video of Bergdahl in captivity. In the new video Bergdahl has a
full head of hair, a beard and pleads for the release of Afghan prisoners that are held in Guantanamo and Bagram.
On July 4, 2011, a British soldier went missing in central Helmand Province in Afghanistan. The Taliban later confirmed responsibility for his
capture, but also announced they had executed him when ISAF forces attempted to rescue him in the following hours. The soldier was later named as
twenty-year-old Highlander Scott McLaren of the 4th Battalion, Royal Regiment of Scotland. His body was recovered and returned to the UK following a
firefight with the insurgents holding his body.
IDK but I don't here much about MIA's in the Stan
