  38. Years of joy and relief fell from my eyes today when I learned of Bowe’s relief. As a mother of a US military veteran who is still helping her son recover from the traumas of war incurred almost a decade ago. These wars steal parts of people even when they manage to come home. I hope we can remember this for all of our veterans and pray that Bowe can find a solidness of support knowing so many of us have prayed for his return. Welcome home Bowe. Welcome home.

  81. U B says:

    WELCOME BACK POW! I kneel down suddenly feeling cold and full of goose bumps in today’s sweltering heat, to kiss the ground thanking God and the SF for your rescue. All those who arranged the exchange, on both sides, too. Thanking the “bad guys” over there who took you – for your release. May all others who’s release was granted in your exchange be happy now that they are free, may their God that they believe in- grant them peace. May this war come to an end. POW release day should be made a national holiday of celebration for this POW, and all others before him…
