Released captive Bergdahl coming back to U.S. Army base

Posted: Updated:
Released captive Bergdahl arrived in the United States early Friday morning at an army base in Texas.

He is now recovering at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio. The Pentagon said he will continue the next phase of his re-integration profess there. The Idaho native is expected to be reunited with his family there.

Bergdahl had been recovering in Germany after five years as a Taliban captive. The President negotiated Bergdahl's release by trading five Taliban members for the P.O.W.

The army has not yet started its review into the circumstances that led to Bergdahl's capture and whether he deserted the army and was found by the insurgents. If they reveal he walked away from his platoon, he could lose more than half a million dollars back pay and possibly face charges. But if he is a prisoner of war, he could receive compensation.
