Veterans groups to hold rally for captured soldier


The Veterans of Foreign Wars, Rolling Thunder and AMVETS, an American veterans organization, will host a rally for captured Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl at the Devonshire overpass on State Route 12 on April 18 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. and

April 19 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

People attending the event should bring a U.S. flag. Yellow ribbons will be provided. Those with questions can call the VFW at 360-249-3644.

Bergdahl was captured in Afghanistan in 2009, and is thought to be held in Pakistan by an insurgent group, according to the Washington Post. Federal government officials strengthened efforts to free Bergdahl earlier this year before the bulk of U.S. forces leave Afghanistan.

Bergdahl is originally from Sun Valley, Idaho.
