POW Families Wait and Worry About Loved Ones

Whatever your feelings on war, it's hard not to be concerned for the first American POW's. They are from Fort Bliss in El Paso, and Monday night the families of those soldiers can only wait and worry about when or if their loved ones will return. The group apparently took a wrong turn Sunday in the Iraqi desert and was captured by an elite unit of the Iraqi Army.

The Iraqi Government has since released photos of the captured soldiers. One of those soldiers was 23-year-old Joseph Hudson. His mother talked about how she found out. "I called my son my other son Anthony and told him your brother is a prisoner of war and he started to scream," said Hudson.

Iraqi Minister Tariq Aziz says the prisoners will be treated humanely, out of respect to the policies outlined in the Geneva Convention.
