Bergdahl celebration set for June 28
Event is now themed "Bowe is Back"
By :GREGORY FOLEY
The Wood River Valley will celebrate the release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in an event called "Bowe is Back" on Saturday, June 28, from 1-5 p.m. at Hop Porter Park in Hailey.
The event was going to be called "Bring Bowe Back" but the name and the theme were changed after the soldier from Hailey was released from captivity in Afghanistan on Saturday.
Event co-organizer Debbie Oneill said Bergdahl's parents, Bob and Jani Bergdahl, will speak at the event. In addition, singer-songwriter Carole King will perform. Idaho Sen. Michelle Stennett, D-Ketchum, will be the keynote speaker.
The event will feature activities for children and food will be served.

Guarantee you this is being organized by Code Pink or OFA.
Maybe John Walker Lindh can be in attendance..or maybe Mohammed Morsi
Given the publicity, I wouldn’t be surprised to see some Patriot Riders or another, similar group.
That would be a good time and place for a memorial for the six soldiers who died looking for the deserter —
Oops...meant to copy you. This could be some BBQ.
Six..more like 14..Ive been hearing that there could be as many as 14 servicemen who died looking for this schmuck
He was not a prisoner of war! He was no hero! These celebrations are wrong.
I’d like to force feed bacon to him and his bastard father.
“Given the publicity, I wouldnt be surprised to see some Patriot Riders or another, similar group.”
Maybe they will show to disrupt as they do for the felps crowd?
It reminds me of the film “Saving Private Ryan.”
Well, the twisted, perverse, 21st Century Obama version anyway...
Assume this will take place *after* the UCMJ Article 32 preliminary hearing.
In addition, singer-songwriter Carole King will perform. Idaho Sen. Michelle Stennett, D-Ketchum, will be the keynote speaker.
they cleared their schedules awfully quickly....wow ... Im impressed.../
The 15-6 would take longer.
I really think we need to hear what Dude has to say about his views of America before anybody goes throwing a party for him. Will he bend down and kiss the tarmack in Texas or will he spit on it? That is the 64thousand dollar question.
“That would be a good time and place for a memorial for the six soldiers who died looking for the deserter ”
There were six killed in the search FROM HIS UNIT. Others, from other units, were also killed in the search. The whole area shut down other operations and focused 100% on the search for the DESPICABLE DEFECTOR.
I just saw video of the upper level al Quaeda meeting and greeting these ‘terrorist detainees’. It sure looked like “aid and comfort” to me.
Totally wrong. Totally misguided and appalling.
Now that we know more -- including the terrorists we released (in violation of the Constitution); the circumstances of Bergdahl's separation from his unit (voluntary, it now seems); and the deaths of our soldiers seeking to rescue Bergdahl (who, quite probably, did not want to be rescued) -- I suspect the celebrations will be quietly scuttled.
A long time ago, I’d agree with you, that the farce would be called off.
Now, I’m pretty sure the show will go on, and those who question it will be “gaslighted”...they’ll be told nothing is wrong, and that they are crazy for questioning it.
It’s been that way for a few years now.
I would hope that some honorable troops or vets would make their presence known (nothing violent) to remind people that Bergdahl is NOT honorable, that his going AWOL caused the death of 6 other soldiers.
He is a Deserter in my opinion. That aside, I doubt if hell be emotionally healthy enough to appear at that ceremony unless its still photos from a hospital room.
Call the VFW in Hailey ID, and raise hell about them celebrating a traitor.
Matter of fact CALL them and give them an earfull.
Last I heard from Carole King, she was singing “You’ve Got a Friend” to inFidel Castro.
any Idaho patriots left ?
Bo Gritz ? anyone? crickets......
I hope it will rain cats and dogs on his parade.
If you think this celebration is over the top, think about the Taliban parties going down. Obama has put the errr, TaliBand back together.
This is just to distract from the VA scandal.
or vice versa —
‘It reminds me of the film Saving Private Ryan.’
I was thinking of the TV show “Homeland.”
As a retired member of the U.S. Army I cannot express in words the outrage I feel over this incident...
This is TREASON straight up!
A couple weeks R&R (goats watch out) and these 5 guys are back in Afghanistan hard at work
The event was already scheduled as a “Bring Bowe Back” rally, now changed to “Welcome Back Bowe.” I sure am curious about the attention the family was able to generate. No one seems to listen to the families of the men killled at Benghazi.
I would suggest that the town of Hailey immediately cancel any “celebration” ceremony for the release and home coming of Bowe Bergdahl, known traitor/treason and “Taliban” open supporter. Both Bergdahl & Obama are traitors for their actions. Other then Sen. Claire MacCaskill....no rank and file Democrat has raised a voice to support either Obama or Bergdahl!!
The anger in the country is rising to a fever pitch....across all lines!!! The parents of Bowe Bergdahl are not wrapped too tight either, and I believe it is prudent for Bergdahl to come home and face a court martial....rather then a celebration for his country loyalty!!! This gent should be sent to military prison for his actions, after receiving a fair, unbiased court martial.
As for Obama....he should be immediately impeached!!!
BYO prayer rug
They KNOW he was a DESERTER, TRAITOR, and they are still willing to make fools of themselves over this POS that was NEVER a POW!!
This is in Hailey-Sun Valley for those of you who don’t know. Just a bunch of hippies and left wing billionaires. Development to them is a dirty word.
Hard to believe that the great state of Idaho would support an event of this type to honor a deserter and traitor.
Those in Idaho be sure to spend your dollars elsewhere. At said website there is a POW / MIA Plaque with Bergdahl on it, what the hell is wrong with these people? http://bringboweback2014.com/
These “parents” of this traitor bastard remind me of the idiot parents of rachel pancake corie. I have a model of an IDF D9R bulldozer and i intend to display it with an arm and leg sticking out from the track and blade.
The attention this family generated sure doesn’t appear to be solely of their doing, but rather it appears to have come about by and large through the efforts of the progressive political machine.
“go back to aghanistan, bowe” works for me....
Think about it —
While everyone is distracted by the VA scandal the CiC pulls off this deal flying to Afghanistan in the process to finalize the deal while everyone thinks that he flew there to escape the VA scandal.
It was a twofer.
