SGT Bowe R. Bergdahl, US Army
Captured: June 30, 2009 - Afghanistan

Bowe Robert Bergdahl (born March 28, 1986 in Sun Valley, Idaho) is a 27-year-old United States Army soldier who was captured by the Taliban while serving in southeastern Afghanistan in June 2009.

At the time of his capture, he was a 23 years old, a Private First Class (E-3) and a member of 1st Battalion, 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, based at Fort Richardson, Alaska.  On June 12, 2010, he was promoted to Specialist (E-4) during his captivity.  On June 12, 2011, Bowe was promoted to Sergeant (E-5) with the promotion certificate presented by the Army to his parents.

SGT Bergdahl went missing on June 30, 2009.  The Taliban has released several videos of SGT Bergdahl in captivity.  They are demanding the release of several prisoners in exchange for SGT Bergdahl's release.

A passionate plea from a caring father:


~ Please keep Bowe and his family in your thoughts and prayers ~

~ You will NEVER be forgotten ~

The POW*MIA Elko Awareness Association is dedicated to support SGT Bergdahl's family and the families of all those who may be Prisoners of War (POWs) or Missing in Action (MIA).
