Sup Travellers?! Bowe Bergdahl is a US soldier who had been held hostage by the Taliban for five whole years. He went missing on June 30th 2009 in southeast Afghanistan and many feared that he was dead. However, according to reports from the Washington Post, Bergdahl is finally going home.

The Army sergeant was released as part of a deal brokered by Qatar that also freed five detainees at the military prison in Guantanamo Bay. The 28 year old seemed to be in good health after his release but he was still examined by military doctors.

President Obama personally delivered the news to Bergdahl's family in a statement saying that his release "is a reminder of America’s unwavering commitment to leave no man or woman in uniform behind on the battlefield." 

Bergdahl, believed to have been held by the Taliban offshoot Haqqani network, was turned over to US special-ops forces at an unspecified location. The five Gitmo detainees were being transferred to Qatar and will have a one-year travel ban among other security restrictions. 

Can you even imagine how overjoyed Bergdahl's family must be right now? Their son is back!!! It wouldn't have been possible if that deal brokered by Qatar wasn't made. So, good job on that. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
