Bowe Bergdahl

Celebration cancelled

4 Jun, 2014

The welcome back celebration for Bowe in Hailey, Idaho is cancelled. With the negative feedback the town has received, organizers express their concerns about security for the potential amount of supporters and non-supporters that would be in attendance. Chamber of Commerce President Jane Drussel Drussel, who has personally received hate mail and phone calls, due to her support of Bergdahl’s release in her statements to the media, clarifies that the event was planned to be a welcome home ceremony, not a hero’s welcome.

The joy has all of a sudden become not so joyful.
