How much longer must he wait for freedom! Let them know that America can no longer allow Bowe to remain in enemy hands!

In case you’re just now finding out about the proof of life video, here are the details according to three new sources:
“The United States has obtained a “proof of life” video of American soldier Bowe Bergdahl who disappeared from his base in Afghanistan in 2009 and is the only U.S. service member held captive by enemy forces, officials said Wednesday.
The video — which was on a thumb drive intercepted by the U.S. last week — shows a frail, shaky Bergdahl making a reference to the recent death of South African leader Nelson Mandela, the officials said.”
“In the latest video received by the military, Bergdahl was speaking and appeared “gaunt,” the official told Fox News on Wednesday.”
Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has been gone far too long, and we continue to call for and work toward his safe and immediate release,” a Pentagon spokesman said.
Bergdahl strong, well-rounded and easy to talk to, friends say
“We cannot discuss all the details of our efforts, but there should be no doubt that on a daily basis — using our military, intelligence and diplomatic tools — we work to see Sgt. Bergdahl returned home safely,” the spokesman said.”
His family, who received a letter from him last year via the Red Cross, issued a statement in response to the latest video.
“As we have done so many times over the past 4 and a half years, we request his captors to release him safely so that our only son can be reunited with his mother and father,” the statement reads. “BOWE – If see this, continue to remain strong through patience. Your endurance will carry you to the finish line. Breathe!”

It’s time to bring Bowe home!
Friday September 20, 2013 is National POW/MIA Recognition Day. Many will hear that this day has been set aside to remember those who are, or have been, designated as a Prisoner of War or as Missing in Action. But how many have even heard Bowe’s name? While people are learning about this special day, they should also learn that America currently has a POW from the war in Afghanistan. While the public is thinking about the POW/MIA issue (at least for the day), Bowe Supporters have an opportunity to tell them about Bowe’s plight. Please consider downloading the free brochure that tells Bowe’s story. Make a few copies and distribute them. Bowe’s supporters are his voice as he cannot speak out for himself.

Jani, we wish that we could give you the Mother’s Day gift you want more than anything, your son safe in your arms. If anything is true this is: we, all of us across America, will do everything in our power to assure that this is the last year you will spend Mother’s Day without your son. May God Bless you and your family every day and with that special day when Bowe returns home.
A son is a son
wherever he roams
no matter how far
or the years that have flown.
He may test the darkness
to challenge the unknown,
yet he’ll never be less
than your beloved son.
He may take your soul with him
from sea to sea;
but the child of your heart
he will ever be.
Doesn’t matter the distance
or trials he may know,
he is always ‘your son’
wherever he goes.
