He’s coming home!

Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl is coming home! Bergdahl, from Hailey Idaho, was released today into the presence of the U.S. military; his freedom gained in exchange for five prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay prison.

Officials reported the sergeant was able to walk on his own upon his release. Once in the helicopter, he held up a paper plate with handwritten letters: “SF?”  The SF asking “Special Forces?”

When the operators answered with “Yes, we’ve been looking for you for a long time,” the freed sergeant wept.

We rejoice in the return of a courageous and persevering young man. May his reunion with those who love him dearly heal his heart, body and spirit.

Welcome home.
