Supporting Idaho POW is goal of 'One Million Cards for Bowe'

BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - "One Million Cards for Bowe" is a campaign to mail as many cards as possible to support an Idaho prisoner of war.

Organizers want Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, a soldier from Hailey, to know they haven't forgotten him even after four and a half years in captivity.

Organizer Dwight Murphy of Boise said the goal is "one million cards sent to the White House to the president's office to let them know that we have not forgotten about Bowe Bergdahl and we want answers."

The Taliban captured Bergdahl in Afghanistan in June 2009. Now, family and friends are preparing for another Christmas without him.

"We want him to know that we're here," Murphy said. "We want our son home, our brother, we want our uncle, we want Bowe Bergdahl home on American soil where he belongs."

Bergdahl is the only known American service member currently being held by enemy combatants.
