On June 30, 2009, U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, 27, of Hailey, Idaho, disappeared from his base in southeastern Afghanistan.
That was four years ago yesterday.
If you haven’t heard about Bowe Bergdahl, you’re not alone. That seems to be changing and that’s a good thing.
The commander of the U.S. Forces Afghanistan, Gen. Joseph F. Dunford, issued a statement about Bergdahl saying, “Four years later, we are still waiting for Sgt. Bergdahl’s safe return, and it is my sincere hope that the wait will soon come to an end. To Sgt. Bergdahl’s family, I want to say that we know you have not given up hope, and neither have we.”
Since his capture by the Taliban, they have reportedly released five videos of him and they would like to exchange him for five prisoners being held in Guantanamo Bay.
There are several different versions about how and why Bergdahl was captured. The bottom line is that he was captured and he needs to be returned. The United States should leave no stone unturned in bringing him home.
Four years is too long.
