'Bergdahl represents Idaho, nation courageously'

Idaho's congressional delegation - Sens. Mike Crapo and Jim Risch and Reps. Mike Simpson and Walt Minnick - has issued the following joint statement about the capture of an Idaho soldier, Hailey native Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl, by Taliban forces in Afghanistan:

“Out of respect for Private First Class Bergdahl and his family, we have been declining to comment on his capture by the Taliban. With the Pentagon now confirming his identity, we add our thoughts and prayers with others for his reunion with family, friends and Army colleagues.  Private Bergdahl represents Idaho and his nation courageously.  We remain ready to assist in whatever manner his family and the U.S. military so chooses.”
