September 9 at 9:00am until September 17 at 12:00pm

We will be riding horses from Malad City Idaho to Hailey Idaho in September 9, date subject to change a little from now, escorting a riderless horse to represent the US POW that is being held in Afghanistan We would like anyone to join us that would like. This will not be an easy trip, we will be camping under the stars,Carrying all of our own food. Our young american soldier is suffering, nothing we will experience will even compare to what he has seen over the last two and a half years.

Bowe Robert Bergdahl (born March 28, 1986 in Sun Valley, Idaho) is a United States Army soldier who, since June 2009, is in the captivity of the Taliban-supporting Afghanistan Haqqani network This young PFC has been held as a prisoner of war for 2 years 6 months by this branch of the Taliban. They have made demands on the US government that they have been unwilling to meet. 

Bergdahl is assigned to the 1st Battalion, 501st Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, based at Fort Richardson, Alaska.[4] He went missing on June 30, 2009. Since then, the Taliban has released five videos showing him in captivity. The Taliban have demanded $1 million[5] and the release of 21 Afghan prisoners and Aafia Siddiqui in exchange for Bergdahl's release. They have threatened to execute Bergdahl if Siddiqui is not released. Most of the Afghan prisoners are being held at Guantanamo Bay.

Bowe has been left behind by his government which has been unable to negotiate for his release since his capture. It has been reported that he has escaped twice from his captures only to be captured again. We want all americans to know his name. The only Prisoner of War currently known in Afghanistan. It is time to bring him home....Please join as as we raise attention for his release. As we ask every american to call, write or otherwise contact your government officials and ask for his release. We have been patient long enough and can remain quiet no more. 

Bowe we will raise the roof, we will sing to the Angels, we will demand your release from these that have held you against your will away from your family.
