Eye On Boise

Otter pays tribute to troops, those lost

The governor is paying tribute to Idaho's military members, including the Idaho National Guard's 116th Cavalry Brigade Combat Team and the Army Reserve's 391st Engineer Company. He noted those who died in 2011: Nathan Beyers and Nicholas Newby of the 116th; and from other military divisions, Robert Dyas, Devin Daniels and Ryan Sharp. “They were our sons and our fathers, our brothers and our teachers, our students and our friends,” Gov. Otter said. “They each will be sorely missed.” He also took note of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl of Hailey, who remains a captive of the Taliban in Afghanistan. “I know you join me in continuing to pray for his safe release and speedy return home,” Otter said.
