U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, who spent five years as a Taliban prisoner of war before being released last month, has been discharged from a military hospital in Texas and will continue treatment as an outpatient, the Army said Sunday.
Bergdahl was transferred from Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas, to the nearby Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston, said Army spokeswoman Lieutenant Colonel Carol McClelland.
"Its a sign of progression, showing he's no longer a patient of a hospital," McClelland said.
Bergdahl's next phase of recovery, during which he'll continue to get medical care and undergo psychological treatment tailored for soldiers who have spent time in captivity, could last anywhere from a few days to a month, McClelland said.

“The Army statement Sunday said Bergdahl is receiving counseling from “Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape” psychologists” to “continue to ensure he progresses to the point where he can return to duty.”
The Army said specifics of Bergdahl’s location would not be made public.”
Prisoner of War? How about collaborator...?
Interesting. So desertion and collaborating with the enemy that resulted in the multiple deaths of US vets is now considered a mental illness.
Is he on the VA’s waiting list?
Yeah, number one on the list.
Only a matter of time before he hits a bar/restaurant and is recognized by a vet(s)/Marines, and when that happens, I would not want to be him.
amazing recovery for someone who was supposedly knocking on deaths door
Three reasons Bergdahl was not a POW: Number 1, he was not captured; Number 2, he deserted; Number 3, he was not being held by the Taliban, not an army.
A miracle, don’t you think?
It is if the Obamanation is your CiC.
“....The Army said specifics of Bergdahls location would not be made public. “
What is in darkness will be shouted from the rooftops!!
Texas citizens, be watchful.
“..... return to duty. “
No court martial for DESERTION???!!!???
Just took a little vacation
“Only a matter of time before he hits a bar/restaurant and is recognized by a vet(s)/Marines,and when that happens,I would not want to be him.”
Especially in Texas.
We take our military service seriously.
Deserters are persona non grata here. To put it mildly.

Aargh, need sarcasm tag!!!!
See post #16.
I don’t think there is any way this guy is going to ever return to duty. They will figure some way to cashier him out without a court martial.
And some brave Texan will kick his ass.....
When OJ gets out, he and Bergdahl and baby-killer Casey Anthony can do speaking tours.
That’s the way the hero of Benghazi is playing it
I think it would be a real laugh if the traitor deserts again.
That’s very comforting to hear that he’s doing well.
I hope that his mom taught him how to knit, so he can spend some time knitting his very own Muslim bomb belt, to prepare him for re-entering the US population!
WOW...what a fast recovery for someone who was close to death a month ago...
He will walk FREE...no one goes after obama for real, they are all afraid of him. UNBELIEVABLE
