Saving Sergeant Bergdahl
Re “no soldier left behind” [June 16]: It is very easy to pick holes with the decision of President Obama to free Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl if you are not his parents. The life of every soldier is important. The sacrifice they continue to make is enormous. Even if Bergdahl is a deserter, every good American should show him love. I can only congratulate the President for taking such a bold but painful decision.That is why Americans elected him.
Yes, Bergdahl’s life was worth being saved. In fact, every life is worth being saved when we have the means to do so, no matter the cost or what is at stake—just ask his family.
