Bowe Bergdahl returning to U.S. for more treatment after release
CNN ^ | June 12, 2014 | Barbara Starr, Tom Cohen and Dana Ford

Posted on 06/12/2014 7:12:21 PM PDT by Second Amendment First

Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is on a flight from Europe and is scheduled to arrive in San Antonio, Texas, within hours.

Bergdahl had been in a military hospital in Landstuhl, Germany, since he was released in Afghanistan after five years of Taliban captivity.

He is expected to be taken to a military hospital in the Texas city for continued rehabilitation.

"I can confirm that he is now en route to the United States aboard a U.S. military aircraft, having departed Ramstein Air Base earlier this afternoon," Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said in a statement Thursday. "He will arrive in San Antonio early tomorrow morning, where he will continue the reintegration process at Brooke Army Medical Center."

"Our first priority is making sure that Sgt. Bergdahl continues to get the care and support he needs."

Aren’t we kidnapping him? I thought he wanted to be with his brethren in Afghanistan, not in this evil country?

Unlike the REAL veterans who served honorably only to be put on a secret list by the VA.

I am not personally cognizant of any other American POW...ever held by the taliban.

Have you knowledge of there ever having been one?

I was under the impression that they took little time in dispatching infidels they came in contact with

I dont buy his story at ALL

Former JAG Officer”: #Bergdahl Already Arrested! Likely Get 20 years, “They Could Still Shoot Him” Monday, June 09, 2014 8:59:41 PM

May I be the first to call Bravo Sierra on this report?

Ditto .... not going to happen. Within the next few days we will be hearing about Bergdahl returning to the US, reuniting with his parents in the Army hospital in San Antonio, TX. A few weeks later it's back home to Hailey, ID for the homecoming parade.

My comment on Monday of this week ... nailed it.

PRIVATE Bergdahl suffers from depression due to having been ripped from the teat of the Taliban against his wishes.

No waiting list for a traitor!!!

Onboard the flight with Bergdahl is the officer in charge, a physician’s assistant, psychiatrist, and a personal recovery specialist.

Is the recovery specialist good looking? I could use some special recovery.

Of course it will take him a while to re-learn English, so he won’t be available for questioning any time soon.

He’s going to get government health care. It serves him right.

A rag mag is strongly suggesting that he had a wife and family in Afghanistan. Not sure if it is true but, would explain the tears and him not wanting to leave.

In this case, it wasn’t exactly the Taliban holding holding Bergdahl...it was a mafia group (just for the money-type) that do practice Islam, but not in the pure sense that the Taliban guys do. Also, it should be noted that most of the five prisoners released...were ‘flipped’ by this group to the US (for reward money, I would assume) to start this business several years ago. This group only operates under the goal of cash...so somewhere in this mix....maybe not the US paying....but someone somewhere paid cash.

Ah..Ferengi.

I can just see them now, big ears, cowering over bags of money, rubbing their hands together.

I think I have said this before, but I believe Bergdahl is going through tough times because he realized he did something incredibly stupid and some of his teammates died.

Not wanting to be called Sgt, because he had not gone in front of a board, not wanting to talk with his father, and there may be some other father issues depending on how that was used in his captivity.

I think he may be having an incredible amount of guilt/remorse for his actions. If he is to come out of this as a repentant person, I could deal with him taking a 5 year hard labor deal. There is politics mixed up in this so there is little in the way of open truth available. But he has not gone to the Rose Garden like dad...

Just my thoughts
