Bikers Stand Up For Bowe

Members of the Idaho POW*MIA Awareness Rally Association greet Hailey-area resident Bob Bergdahl, center-left, during a rally for his son, Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl, at Zaney's Coffee House in Hailey on Saturday. Bowe has reportedly been held captive by Taliban militants in Afghanistan since June 30. Bob spoke a few emotional words of thanks to the assembled men and women, many of whom have gone through similar experiences. A few were seen wiping away tears. More than 170 bikers braved torrential rain and hail to support the Idaho soldier. Coming from numerous destinations across Idaho and Nevada, the riders were organized by the Pocatello POW*MIA group. POW*MIA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the financial support and public awareness of prisoners of war and soldiers missing in action. "[We did this] because we have the family in our hearts and minds and we wanted to show our support for them and encourage other people to do the same thing," said Casey Jackman, director of public relations for the POW*MIA group Photo by David N.
