BOISE, IDAHO — The father of an American soldier who was just released after spending five years in the hands of the Taliban says his family is starting on the next step of a long mission: Helping Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl recover from his ordeal.
“We’re still in recovery mode ourselves, let alone our concern about how Bowe is going to come back, and what we need to work on,” Bob Bergdahl told dozens of journalists and supporters during a press conference in Boise on Sunday.
“Someday there will be a time for interviews and books and whatever. I have a lot to say about this. I know Bowe is going to have a lot to say about this. But that’s still a distant, future thing, and I won’t let things get in the way of Bowe’s recovery,” he said.
