If I buy a bond and hold it to maturity (5 years or less) will I not receive both initial principal plus the interest?

When you invest in an individual bond and hold it to "maturity," you won't lose your principal unless the bond issuer defaults.

What's the potential downside of Bulletshares BSJF ETF, with all holdings maturing by end of year 2015. Investments are high yield with short maturity. Fund holding 128 positions should minimize problem with any defaults.

Sheldon,

The answer depends on how much interest rates and credit spreads change between now and the time the fund's bonds mature.
