We often interact with Bowe Supporters who are from the U.K., Canada and Australia. It’s really great to know that Bowe has worldwide support. Like the United States, each of these countries has troops serving as members of the ISAF (International Security Assistance Force.) Sometimes in Afghanistan service members from the U.S. work together with service members from the U.K.. Canada and Australia. With that in mind, we want to share a video with you. The soldiers singing together in the video are from the U.K. and the U.S.A. It’s called “Coming Home”. All of us who are supporters of SGT Bowe Bergdahl long for the day we can shout “He’s coming home!”
Today is Bowe’s 28th birthday. While birthdays are typically a cause for celebration, the thought that Bowe has now seen five birthdays come and go while in captivity is heartbreaking. This is why today, Bowe’s birthday, is a day of solemness. We reflect on it in our own way and it motivates us all differently for different reasons. But in the end what we all want, what we pray for, is that Bowe will soon return home… to his family, to the place that is safe and familiar.
Maybe today we can all tell somebody that a friend who you’ve never met is having a birthday, that his name is Bowe Bergdahl. Tell them about Bowe and ask them to tell his story too. Today give Bowe the gift of your time. Dear Bowe Supporters, it’s YOU who stand in the gap for Bowe until he comes home. We are all waiting and advocating for Bowe until we can celebrate his homecoming.
Don’t forget that you can leave a message of support for Bowe and his family by signing the Guest Book here on supportbowe.org. The Guest Book entries are being saved so that when Bowe gets home, they’ll always be there for him to read. Follow this LINK to the Guest Book if you’d like to add your name to it.

PLEASE NOTE: Occasionally people have had problems signing up for the petition or confirming their registration info via their email. We have been told by a few Bowe Supporters that the White House web security system sometimes will not allow sign-ups from some people who are using their mobile phones. Some have also found it difficult to click on the emailed confirmation link that redirects back to https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/. Sometimes when that happens one needs to be sure that their pop-up blocker isn’t preventing the redirect. Another solution might be to cut and paste the confirmation link into the url address bar of your browser. There is also a FAQs page on the White House website at https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/how-why/frequently-asked-questions. This is all the information that we can offer regarding problems with creating an account or signing the petition. If we find out more, we’ll add it here.
You are invited to join with other Bowe Supporters on Facebook at Waiting and Advocating for Sgt Bowe Bergdahl, US Army – POW. It would be great to see you there!
As of 10 December 2013, SGT Bowe Bergdahl has been held captive by Taliban-allied insurgents for 4 years, 5 months, 1 week and 3 days.
There are 21 days left in the year 2013. During the holidays, people gather together for many different activities. Often we visit with people who we might not get the chance to see any other time of the year. Sometimes we even get a chance to share conversations with people we have never met before. The holiday season offers us many opportunities to share Bowe’s story with people who have yet to hear about him. It’s a good time to have a few of Bowe’s brochures on hand to share. Some Bowe supporters have had business cards made up with Bowe’s information on them. Business cards are handy and fit easily in a pocket or purse. Giving out a business card is a great way to remind people about Bowe long after you tell them about him.

There are many places where one can purchase business cards. For some ideas about business cards, go HERE.
