    This is insane, with ample evidence of desertion, not to mention the effect on morale of those forced to work with him? He should be in jail pending the conclusion of the “investigation”.


    WASHINGTON — Six weeks after being released from five years in Taliban captivity, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is expected to return to life as a regular Army soldier as early as Monday, Defense Department officials said late Sunday.

    Sergeant Bergdahl has finished undergoing therapy and counseling at an Army hospital in San Antonio, and will assume a job at the Army North headquarters at the same base, Fort Sam Houston, the officials said.

    He is also expected to meet with Maj. Gen. Kenneth R. Dahl, the officer who is investigating the circumstances of Sergeant Bergdahl’s disappearance from his outpost in Afghanistan in 2009.

    Sergeant Bergdahl’s transfer from the therapy phase to a regular soldier’s job is part of his reintegration into Army life, officials said. He will live in barracks and have two other soldiers help him readjust.

    The sergeant has been an outpatient at the hospital for about three weeks, during which time he continued to participate in debriefings about his time as a Taliban prisoner. He was released six weeks ago in exchange for five senior Taliban detainees.

    Last Thursday, Senator Carl Levin, a Michigan Democrat who heads the Armed Services Committee, released letters from each of the Joint Chiefs of Staff supporting the repatriation of Sergeant Bergdahl, a rebuttal to critics who said the swap should not have been made.

    If the Pentagon concluded he was not worth rescuing at a certain point, because he left, then how can they return him to duty now?

    Why do I have a feeling they are just going to run out the clock and forget that this guy deserted his unit on the battlefield?

    Whether he deserted or not, shouldn't a discharge be in order at this point, after his captivity and all?

    When the enemy is the commander and chief, a deserter is a hero.

    I was under the impression that members of the military served their country, not an individual.

    And Bergdahl didn't serve his country either. He deserted and more than likely gave the Taliban information that led to attacks on his garrison. But you keep on believing what you want to believe.

    There was a time when this was true.

    There is little doubt this man walked off his post in the middle of a war zone, he wasn't captured but he walked of (no matter what his reasons were) thats desertion in anyone's book but obama isn't going to let him get charged with it.

    He uses the personal pronoun far more often than he should, but service members still serve their country. At least, the ones I know do.
