SAN ANTONIO, TX – Seargent Bowe Bergdahis back in the Army for now and for the foreseeable future.

Army doctors have given Sgt. Bergdahl permission to leave their medical care and return to regular duty. This is  the final stage in his re-integration into the Army. The same Army that he may have tried to walk away from while stationed in Afghanistan.

The Taliban held Bergdahl for five years before letting him go in May in exchange for the release of five Taliban commanders held at Guantanamo Bay.

He’ll stay at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio where Army officials say he’ll be given administrative duties commensurate with his rank.

Bergdahl will be a desk jockey, spinning military records while the Army continues its investigation into how and why he left his post and ended up sleeping with the enemy.

Army officials say, in the meantime, he’ll be just another G.I. Joe, bunking in non-commissioned quarters with another soldier. Kind of the way it was in Afghanistan, only this time it will be harder for him to wander off in the middle of the night.
