BOISE -- Friday many remembered an Idaho soldier who spent another birthday in captivity.

March 28 is Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl's 28th birthday and the fifth since the man from Hailey was captured in Afghanistan, back on June 30, 2009.

U.S. Central Command sent a statement marking the occasion urging all of us to keep Bergdahl and his family in our thoughts.

The statement says, He has been gone far too long, and there should be no doubt that we work every day -- using our military, intelligence and diplomatic tools -- to see Sgt. Bergdahl returned home safely. His return remains the priority for CENTCOM. Our hearts go out to the Bergdahl family, and we ask that he be remembered in your thoughts.
