Sgt. Bergdahl Grand Marshal for Hailey Parade

HAILEY–Thousands lined the streets of Hailey Wednesday for the annual 4th of July Parade. KTVB reports the town did something special this year for the only known American prisoner of war Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. At first, it was your typical parade, American flags, fire trucks, pictures and candy. Then there was a yellow 1956 Thunderbird, flanked by two POW flags. The classic was meant for this year’s Grand Marshal, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, currently held as a prisoner of war in Afghanistan. The cheering that came was that of support for Bowe’s father Bob Bergdahl and other family members who followed the classic that was meant to carry their brother and son. Despite the clapping and cheers Bob’s eyes remained fixed on what was missing in the car. Many stood up as Bob walked down the middle of the road, their way to pay respect.  Bob never waved to the crowd. He never spoke a word. His son has been a prisoner for the last 1,100 days and everyone knows it. Bowe’s parents continue to work behind the scenes in contact with several government agencies who are trying to bring their son home.
