The vast majority of e-mails sent to Hailey City Hall condemned the city for planning a homecoming celebration for Sergeant Bowe Bergadahl, now exposed as a traitor and a deserter. A lot of the messages talked about remembering the soldiers who were killed looking for Bergdahl.
KBOI (h/t Susan K) One email reads, ‘I’ve an idea….send an invitation to the families of the six honorable soldiers killed trying to find him on his ‘walk a bout’. From all the emails only three or four were positive. Emails even attacked Bergdahl’s father calling him a Muslim. Many emails talked about boycotting the town of Hailey, like this email: “According to Bergdahl’s father, ‘Hailey is just like Afghanistan.’ Congratulations, you made my list of places to avoid in America.” The majority of the emails were from veterans.
