Bergdahl’s Medal Controversy

Former Afghanistan captive Bowe Bergdahl should be allowed to wear a Prisoner of War Medal, his lawyer said at a pre-trial hearing Tuesday.
According to the “Stars and Stripes, Bergdahl’s attorney also told Army judge Col. Jeffrey Nance that the government should authorize him to wear the Purple Heart, the Afghanistan Campaign Medal and the NATO medal.
Sgt. Bergdahl is accused of abandoning his post in Afghanistan in 2009. He was captured by the Taliban and released five years later in exchange for five prisoners at Guantanamo Bay.
The 29-year-old soldier remains on active duty at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston. He faces a general court-martial in August on charges of misbehavior before the enemy and desertion.
The Army judge is trying to determine who to handle thousands of documents, many of them classified.
