COMMANDERíS CORNER:† Bob Smith, Commander
Sitting here watching the snow come down I reflect on a conversation at the Canteen the other day. Dave Hayes called 1-202-224-3121 to speak about POW Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Directed to the phone bank listings for elected representatives he had to choose our area representatives. Calling local office numbers, the workers stated they were not aware of Sgt. Bergdahl. What a shame that representative office workers are unaware. We need to call all of our elected officials and request something be done about the POW Sgt. Bergdahl held since JUNE 30, 2009.
