SORT BY Relevancy
Bowe Robert Bergdahl is a United States Army soldier who was held captive by the Taliban-aligned Haqqani network in Afghanistan.
Bowe Robert Bergdahl was born in Sun Valley, Idaho, on March 28th, 1986 – the same day as Lady Gaga, as his parents like to point out
At 20, Bowe in search of the kind of boy's adventure decided to join the French Foreign Legion, but his application was rejected.
Spring 2008 joined army
May 23rd, 2009. What started as an eight-hour mission, ended up taking five days.
In early June, 2009 after photographs taken by Sean Smith appeared in The Guardian, Bowe's unit got reamed out by its commander for its lack of discipline. Bowe's squad leader, Sgt. Greg Leatherman, was demoted, and two other sergeants in the squad were reassigned.
June 25th, 2009 - Bowe's battalion suffered its first casualty of the deployment. A popular officer, 1st Lt. Brian Bradshaw, was killed in a blast from a roadside bomb near the village of Yaya Kheyl, not far from the outpost. Though Bradshaw was in a different company, the 24-year-old's death rocked the unit, shattering the sense of invulnerability that accompanies those who have just arrived in country. Bowe's father believes that Bradshaw and Bowe had grown close at the National Training Center, and his death darkened his son's mood.
June 27th,2009 he sent what would be his final e-mail to his parents. It was a lengthy message documenting his complete disillusionment with the war effort.
early-morning hours of June 30th, 2009 He gathered up water, a knife, his digital camera and his diary. Then he slipped off the outpost.
On 10:30 a.m. (EDT) May 31, 2014, Bergdahl was handed over by 18 Taliban members to a special operations team in eastern Afghanistan, near Khost on the Pakistani border, in what was described as a "peaceful handover".
Sergeant Bergdahl, 26, America’s only known current prisoner of war. He was captured under still unclear circumstances in June 2009 by insurgents in the mountains of eastern Afghanistan New York Times
Remaining steadfast and forever thankful that this American POW was released and continuing to keep Sgt Bergdahl & his family in my thoughts and prayers. There are so many challenges ahead and this military mom for one, continues to pray for Sgt Bergdahl & family, especially his mom, Jani, just as I have since learning of Sgt Bergdahl's capture a few years ago. There is only ONE BREATH DIFFERENCE between FEAR OF LOSING A CHILD AND LOSING A CHILD. ColoradoMilitaryMom
“Compared to hell of the real wars of the past, we are nothing but camping boy scots. Hiding from children behind our heavy armored trucks and our c-wire and sand bagged operating post, we tell our selves that we are not cowards . . . ”
~ Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl ~
“Bullet sponges,” he wrote at one point. “This is what some of the SEALs call regular Army and other mass ground troops. Its right, the job of a soldier is to basically die.” ~ Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl ~
I thought we support the troops? When did Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl stop being a troop?

Was this negotiating with terrorists? Is it ok to exchange "known" terrorits for a US solider that deserted his unit? Who gave the go ahead on the exchange? These are the questions we will be asking tonight on the Current Issues Show. Get the inside scoop on the exchange that took place and the discussion that followed. Who is Bowe Bergdahl and more importanly what did the US give up to get him back?
At the intersection of policy, history and politics, waiting in the darkest recesses of the Tea Party vs. GOP no-man's-land, is Radio Free America!
Many Americans had forgotten, over the last five years, that the taliban were holding U.S. Army private Bowe Bergdahl, now a sergeant. He's back in our hands now...but who did we have to give up? Did we trade a king, a queen, two bishops and a knight for a pawn?
Meanwhile, back on Capitol Hill, former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was defeated in Tuesday's primary, and resigned from his leadership position earlier today. Is this a signal that the Tea Party is gaining strength?
Also: Some Civil War History, a little hangar flying and...your calls! Don't miss it!
Reese Boyd, III candidate for District 5 Horry County Council will be joining us In the Pickle Barrel. Oh, do I have some questions about this race.

Was Bergdahl's release keeping the promise of "no man left behind"?
Is Bergdahl a hero or deserter?
Did President Obama break the law by working out Bergdahl's release?
Are more American military and civilian workers now at risk because our "deal making"?
Join in the discussions for this morning's abbreviated show starting at 7AM-8:00AM In the Pickle Barrel.

"KNUTE" now deployed in Afghanistan Special episode on the latest news on
Prisoner of War U.S.Army Bowe Bergdahl http://www.RollingThunderIL1.com
Since June 30th, 2009 only a handful of journalist and television people have actually taken the time and written one or two articles in almost "5" YEARS! Now that President OBAMA has stepped up like the attack on Osama Bin Laden layer every single wanna be journalist is GROPING for a headline story on a SAY SO or Hear Say just to get published. BullSH%^T. Hiding behind "Right of Free Speech each wanna be jouranlist, new reporter, radio personality and TV show host needs to know the facts. The United States Army will conduct an investigation just as they did on the Mi Lai massacre, Sgt kelly and the Oliver North story. Senator John McCain, Admiral Schumacher and General John Borling ALL were Prisoners of War in Vietnam. Not a one of them were ever convicted before being released. No one wants to go to war. No one wants to be forced to kill a human being. War is hell. I have not been there.I have the privilege to talk to WW I, WW II, Korea, Sarejevo, Falkland Islands, Normandy, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan soldiers men and women. Not a one wanted to be there , but for God and country gave all they could.
Welcome to the Seriouside of the jril show. This morning, we will be discussing the following topics:
1st SEGMENT: DEAL OR NO DEAL
The US has had a long history of not dealing with terrorist. With the release of Sgt Bowe Bergdahl, did the US renege on that policy?
2ND SEGMENT: DUCK DYNASTY
President Obama is at the midpoint of his second term. Should he be considered at this point as a Lame Duck president?
3RD SEGMENT: NOT A GOOD MIX
With all the mass shootings in the US in the past five years, mental ill people continue to find ways to get guns. We will discuss.
in Pop Culture
This week Luqman Nation talks about Black Wall Street and its legacy, including how modern Black economics compares; the Bowe Berghdahl furor and what it really says about how some Americans feel about President Obama; the Pastor Jamal Bryant scandal, and if we can get to it...where the boys aren't - Disney remakes??
