Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel Meets With Team That Rescued Hostage U.S. Soldier

BAGRAM AIR FIELD, Afghanistan (AP) — U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel met with more than a dozen members of the special operations team that participated in the rescue of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl (boh BURG'-dahl), an American soldier held by the Taliban.

Hagel and the special ops team met quietly in a separate part of a hangar where he also spoke to a large group of U.S. troops.

According to a U.S. official, Hagel thanked them and told them they represented the true spirit of never leaving a comrade behind.

They largely kept out of sight. But as the special operations forces walked past their body armor and occasional beards and less clean-cut looks made it evident who they were.

Hagel told them that while they participated in an important mission they do many other jobs that often go unrecognized.

BS, it was not a rescue.

Hagel thanked them and told them they represented the true spirit of never leaving a comrade behind.

After walking to the other side?
