Bowe Bergdahl released from Texas military hospital


Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has moved to outpatient care on a Texas military base.

The soldier held captive for five years by Taliban-linked militants will no longer be in hospital all day, but specifics of his location will not be made public.

“His reintegration process continues with exposure to more people and a gradual increase of social interactions,” an Army spokesman said.


Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, 28, has not spoken about his ordeal publicly since his release on May 31.

He was swapped for five prisoners in a US military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, a move that sparked a heated political row.

Fellow soldiers have also argued Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl knowingly wandered away from his unit while deployed in Afghanistan in June 2009.

The Army has opened an investigation into Bowe Bergdahl’s disappearance, but has said they will not interview him until he is finished with the reintegration process.

Bowe Bergdahl arrived at the US military base near San Antonio on June 13, after a period of recovery at a military hospital in Germany.

In short statement, the Army said Bowe Bergdahl continued to be counseled by psychologists on the military base in San Antonio “to ensure he progresses to the point where he can return to duty”.

In their last update, Army officials said Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl had not yet been in contact with his family, which they described as his own choice.

It is unclear if Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has now spoken to his family.
