Ride to DC for Bowe!

Boots On The Ground NY is planning a ride to Washington, D.C. to raise awareness for an American POW we know is alive, and who has been held for over 3 years!!! Army Sgt Bowe Bergdahl of Idaho is assigned to the 1st Bat, 501st Inf Reg, 25th Infantry Division.  He was only 23 years old when he was taken prisoner.  He is being held by the Haqqani Network, which is allied with the Taliban.  He was captured on 30 June 2009 and is still in captivity!!
