Join me in celebrating the release and homecoming of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl after being held for five years of captivity by the Taliban. His parents said they could hardly wait to wrap their arms around their only son.
Here is a time line of what has happened in the five years Bowe has been missing. Bowe was promoted twice during his captivity. Bowe was traded for five detainees from Guantanamo Bay.
In an article by Matt Smith and Barbara Starr, driving the current effort, according to the U.S. official, is Bergdahl’s poor health and concern a full troop withdrawal from Afghanistan at year’s end would essentially close the door an any rescue attempt.
Please pray for Bowe and his family. May they have courage, faith, and strength on his road to recovery.
I am happy for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl and his family. I hope that his health improves. Can’t imagine what being captive and isolated for 5 yrs. must be like.
Pat, I can’t imagine not knowing about your soldier and worrying for that long. Glad he will be back in their arms.
