(( FOLLOWING THURSDAY MORNING'S DISTURBING IMAGES OF THREE ROUGHED UP U-S ARMY SOLDIERS, THE PENTAGON HAS RELEASED THE CHILLING DETAILS OF THEIR LAST RADIO TRANSMISSION, WITH A NEARBY NATO TROOPS BEFORE THEY WERE CAPTURED BY THE SERBIAN MILITARY.
SOLDIER: "WE'RE IN CONTACT. WE'RE TAKING DIRECT FIRE."
REPLY: "YOULD BETTER NOT BE BULLSHITING ME."
SOLIDER: WE ARE NOT. WE ARE TAKING DIRECT FIRE. WE ARE TRAPPED. THEY ARE ALL AROUND US. WE CANT GET OUT."
NATO NOW ADMITS IT IS POSSIBLE THE THREE MAN TEAM COULD HAVE WANDERED OVER THE KOSOVAR MACEDONIA BORDER. ONE REASON, SOME OFFICIALS SPECULATE WHY THE YUGOSLAVIAN GOVERNMENT PLANS TO TRY THE SERVICEMEN IN MILITARY COURT BEGINNING FRIDAY.

AND IN AVIANO, EVEN AS JETS WERE TAKING OFF FOR ANOTHER ROUND OF AIR STRIKES, AGAINST SERBIA THE FATE OF THEIR FELLOW SERVICEMENT WAS CLEARLY ON THE MINDS OF THE NATO TROOPS.

(SOT: Master Sgt. Robert Raymer)

"Our prayers go to them, and we hope for their safe return." "When something like that happens it really brings to mind what we are doing here, and how serious is actually is."

(Standup)


While declaring the soldiers POWs, should entire them to some protection, it also has a fightening drawback. Geneva Conv. rules stipulate POWs can be held until the end of the conflict. And with no peace agreement with the Serbs in sight, no one knows just how long our U-S soldiers could be there. MM CBS News Aviano))
