Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has returned to military duty, six weeks after his release as a Taliban prisoner, the Army announced Monday.From The New York Times:
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.
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.
Many of Bergdahl’s fellow soldiers accuse the former POW of desertion, and possibly cavorting with the Taliban.
