Official press release from Office of Rep. Lee Terry (R-NE)

Date: May 31, 2014

Terry Reaction to Release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl



U.S. Representative Lee Terry (R-NE), today made the following statement on the release of Bowe Bergdahl, the only American Prisoner of War in Afghanistan:

“A grateful nation welcomes the news of the return of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. I have the pleasure of regularly speaking with our nation’s active duty military and veterans and I know that there is nothing more solemn than the pledge to never leave one of their own behind on the field of battle.

“Sgt. Bergdahl is a national hero. It’s my hope that once he ultimately retires from active duty service, implementation of reforms to our nation’s VA hospitals are made so that he will have access to the long-term care he has rightfully earned from the horrors he endured.

“Furthermore, I call upon President Obama to reach out to the Mexican government to secure the release of Sgt. Tahmooressi who himself has been held captive and abused in a Mexican prison for inadvertently crossing the Mexican border with firearms that he legally owned in the United States. If the President can negotiate with a group who has harbored terrorists and declared war on the United States for the last twelve years, I would expect he can work with our neighbor and trading partner to secure the immediate release and safe return of Sgt. Tahmooressi.”
