Bergdahl back in the US

 

   WASHINGTON (AP) - The Pentagon says Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who's been recovering in Germany after five years as a Taliban captive, is back in the United States.

   A Pentagon spokesman, Rear Adm. John Kirby, says Bergdahl arrived early Friday at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio on a flight from Ramstein Air Base. The Idaho native is expected to be reunited there with his family.

   He was captured in Afghanistan in June 2009 and released by the Taliban on May 31 in a deal struck by the Obama administration in which five Taliban officials were released from detention.

   Kirby says that Bergdahl will -- quote "continue the next phase of his reintegration process" at the Texas base.
