(PHILADELPHIA) - This morning a large number of supporters for POW Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl got up early and traveled to downtown Philly setting up camp in front the studios of Fox 29 TV.

Our sole purpose was to speak out, educate and advocate that there is a “live” American soldier being held as a prisoner of war now for Four years too long! He needs to come home Now!

We were well received by the passers by and the Fox TV crew, some of the news team came out to say hello and offer their support for Bowe.

(Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was with the 1st Battalion, 501st Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, based at Fort Richardson, Alaska, when he went missing during his unit's normal deployment rotation to Afghanistan June 30, 2009, near the town of Yahya Khel in the Paktika Province. This is in the south-east of Afghanistan, right on the border to Pakistan. The area in which Bergdahl was captured is right next to Pakistan's Federally Administered Tribal Areas.)
