HAILEY - Next month will mark a somber anniversary for the Wood River Valley community and all Idahoans.

It will be four years since Hailey soldier Bowe Bergdahl was captured by the Taliban.

The yellow ribbons still hang from trees and businesses in the entire Wood River Valley.

Sargent Bergdahl is believed to be in custody of the Pakistan-based Haqqani network that was labeled as a terrorist organization last year by the State Department.

Not a day goes by here without the goal of bringing Bowe home being top of mind

At Hop Porter Park in Hailey, there will be a special tree planting ceremony next month to remember Bowe.

The four trees represent the four years that Bowe has been held captive, Debbie O'Neil with Bring Bowe Home said. We wanted to come together as a community to come together and show that we want Bowe home. Also right by the trees we will have a plaque dedicated to Bowe.

The tree planting at Hop Porter Park is on June 22nd and is free to attend. The Bring Bowe Back event goes from one to five. The trees will be planted at 2 o'clock.
