Updated: Bergdahl back in U.S.

SAN ANTONIO — Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl returned to the United States early Friday after his release from five years in captivity in Afghanistan in a controversial prisoner swap with the Taliban.

Bergdahl, who has been recovering at an Army medical facility in Germany since his release last month, “will continue the next phase of his reintegration process,” at Brooke Army Medical Center at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Pentagon spokesman Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby said.

“Our focus remains on his health and well-being,” Kirby said.

Officials in Washington said Bergdahl would be reunited with his family at Brooke and spend an undetermined period there in further recuperation. It was not clear when his family would arrive at the Army base. More here.

What kind of welcome do you expect this soldier to receive?
