To The Daily Sun,
Friday, September 20 is National POW/MIA Recognition Day. Over the past years this day has gone unrecognized by the media nationally at most levels. The reason for that could be discussed and speculated at great length. Any discussion would have to fall under the headings of,"Faith, Trust, Truth, Responsibility and Accountability".
For those American service men and women who were captured and returned, we can only be thankful beyond words. Prayers were answered. For those who died in captivity, blessings to them and their families. The only way we can say we are thankful for your sacrifice is to live our lives by doing everything we can on behalf of those who may find themselves in the same situation today or in the future while serving in our name.
Today, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, POW Afghanistan, captured June 2009. ALL evidence shows he is still alive. Even though the tribe holding him (Haqqain) was hit by three drone attacks just a couple of weeks ago and has been stated that leaders of that tribe were killed. There is "much" information known of this American POW and his situation including "where he is". Has and is everything being done to "Bring Him Home Alive"? I guess that's where the words Faith, Trust, Truth, Responsibility and Accountability come in. If Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was YOUR son would you have confidence that everything was being done? Would you have Faith and Trust in the DPMO that is under investigation for failing to have done its job for at least the past 25years? Would you believe everything you were told read or heard about Sgt. Bergdahl or what was being done on his behalf? Do you believe ANY Department in DC or Congress would be responsible or accountable in dealing with this issue?
And the band played on!
