Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the soldier who was held in captivity for nearly five years by the Taliban, then released in a controversial trade for five Guantanamo Naval Base prisoners, may return to active duty as early as Monday, Defense Department officials said Sunday, according to The New York Times.
Bergdahl, who captured the nation’s attention on May 31 in an unforgettable scene from northeastern Afghanistan, is expected to take a regular job at Fort Sam Houston after six weeks of rehabilitation.
Defense Department officials have acknowledged that the Idaho native has completed his initial phases of therapy and counseling in the re-acclimation process, and will be accompanied in his new job by two other soldiers.
According to the Times, Bergdahl will live in regular Army barracks while the Army continues its investigation into his case.
Bergdahl is scheduled to meet with Maj. Gen. Kenneth R. Dahl, the officer who is investigating the sergeant’s suspicious disappearance from his outpost in 2009, according to the Times.
The soldier’s willing departure from military life while on duty in a war zone and subsequent chastisement for desertion by his fellow soldiers stirred up a hornet’s nest of accusations across America, inflamed by the bizarre behavior of his father in a Rose Garden meeting with Barack Obama.
