Did You Know?

Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl

Have you seen this man’s picture before?  Did you know he’s just celebrated his 27th birthday?  Did you know he’s been a Prisoner Of War since 2009 and is in the hands of the Taliban?

I didn’t until I saw a banner his family and supporters posted on Facebook to remind the American people that one of our soldiers is still a POW, with no release date in sight.

Sgt. Bergdahl is being held by the Taliban’s allies and he is believed to be in Pakistan. His release is being negotiated in the peace negotiations in Afghanistan between the  Taliban and the United States. So far, these negotiations have failed to secure his freedom from the terrorists. He is the only known American soldier being held by Taliban insurgents.

So, now you know.  What can we do to help return this hero to his family’s arms?  We can let the White House know that we have heard his story.  Perhaps with an outpouring of love for this soldier, President Obama can escalate his return home.

We can join Task Force Omega by mailing birthday card’s for Bowe Bergdahl to the White House. We must keep his name out there by whatever means we can.

Mail to:
Sgt Bowe Bergdahl
American Prisoner of War in Afghanistan
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

We can also show our support for his family and friends by mailing a birthday card to Bowe.  We hope we can watch him open them when he returns home.

Mail to:

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl
c/o Zaney’s Coffee House
208 N. River Street
Hailey, ID 83333

Please take a moment to let the President know that we know we still have an American soldier being held by terrorists and that we want him home!

And, spread the word so other Americans know!  Let’s make sure he’s not forgotten!

    actually it makes me feels sad when i think of the existence of these terrorists and what hurts me a lot when people think that those people represent islam , i am a muslim and i refuse their existence , and i am totally supporting your case and hoping that this soldier get back to his family as soon as possible

    • I am hoping that people will stop blaming all Muslims for what terrorists are responsible for. Imagine if americans were all treated as terrorists because the people who killed children in movie theaters or schools were American?

        exactly . people need to learn how to differentiate and search more about the truth not just follow news that was made to be delivered in a specific way

  3. I had no idea about POW Bergdahl,- US Army – and as a proud American and Mom of a soldier currently deployed to Afghanistan I am sickened and outraged, not to mention scared to death by this news. I will be dropping cards in the mail to the addresses you have posted and passing along the information to everyone I know. Thank you for making me aware. ,
