Idaho Town Rejoices, Preps For Homecoming

June 2, 2014 by  

Idaho Town Rejoices, Preps For Homecoming, Clusters of bright yellow balloons sway merrily in the breeze in front of Zaney’s River Street Coffee Shop; signs exclaim “Our prayers have been answered!” and American flags adorn the shop’s red wooden facade.

This the hometown of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

Inside Zaney’s, shop owner Sue Martin smiles ear to ear in her colorful kitchen. When Bergdahl was captured by the Taliban in 2009, she turned on a light that she still calls “a ray of hope.” It has been switched on ever since as she has waited for him, and Martin – who employed young Bergdahl in her coffee shop for two years – said, “I’ll let Bowe turn it off.”
