Private First Class Bowe Bergdahl, before his capture by the Taliban in Afghanistan. Bergdahl went missing from his post in Afghanistan on June 30, 2009. He was the only US service member known to be held captive there. Bergdahl was freed May 31, 2014 in exchange for five Taliban inmates held at the Guantanamo prison in a dramatic deal brokered by Qatar.
Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has been released from the Texas hospital he was admitted to when he arrived back in the U.S. more than a week ago, the Army said Sunday.
Bergdahl is now receiving medical and psychological outpatient care on Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston, an Army spokesman said in a statement.
The spokesman said Bergdahl's "reintegration" process was progressing with "exposure to more people and a gradual increase of social interactions." It is unclear if Bergdahl has seen his parents yet.
Bergdahl is being counseled and debriefed to "ensure he progresses to the point where he can return to duty," the spokesman said. His location will not be released in order to "safeguard" the reintegration process.
