By Jaclyn Brandt. CREATED Jun 7, 2012

The June 21 issue of Rolling Stone magazine will feature an article, written by Michael Hastings, on the the Army POW from Idaho, Bowe Bergdahl.

The 23-year old soldier was taken captive by the Taliban in Afghanistan three years ago. He is a Sun Valley native and had joined the army only a year before being sent to Afghanistan.

"Bowe's mother wished he had enlisted in a different branch, like the Navy, that wouldn't have put him on the ground in Iraq or Afghanistan," according to the article. "His father did what he always did with his son's dreams. 'I just tried to be supportive,' Bob says."

The article talks about Bergdahl's life growing up in Idaho and his eventual enrollment in the Army.
