He is currently at a military hospital in Germany. A defense official says he will undergo what is called a "reintegration process" which will give him time to "decompress, and reconnect with his family."
Some of Bowe's fellow soldiers have criticized his release, saying that Bergdahl is a deserter, not a hero. They say that six soldiers have died in searches for Berghdahl after he disappeared. They also claim that Berghdal 'walked off his post' one day and never returned. Read that story HERE
