WTF!

he should be sentenced to death for what he did, immediately preferably right out side the court house by firing squad... did his mother blow Obama in the white house for the deal?

Where is the justice for the real soldiers that died and other that now suffer permanent disfigurement and disabilities because HE deserted? where?!

Bergdahl, who pleaded guilty to endangering his comrades, was fined, reduced in rank to E1 and dishonorably discharged -- but he received no prison time.

As part of the sentence, Bergdahl will forfeit his pay of $1000 per month for ten months.

Bergdahl was shaking and appeared emotional as the verdict was quickly read.

I'm so pissed I can't even see straight how this POS could walk after what he did and then just piss on the ones who gave their lives looking for him.
Just when I thought it couldn't get any worst it does.

Because he avoided jail time with a "schizotypal personality disorder" defense, I suspect he will be able to get VA benefits for the rest of his life.

Even if the VA says: "no benefits for you", a slick lawyer may be able to use this "schizotypal personality disorder" to quietly reinstate everything.

After all, if the military accepts "schizotypal personality disorder" as a valid reason to not give prison time for desertion, how can they deny VA benefits?

good point... I have seen a handfull of dishonorables, claim PTSD after discharge... then get awarded VA benefits, some never even deployed... the system is ripe with corruption, Fraud and abuse.

Trump is to blame for Bergdahl's light sentence:

Trump frequently criticized Bergdahl, calling him a "dirty, rotten traitor."

But Nance indicated he would consider Trump's comments a factor promoting leniency.

"Trump helped take that confinement off the table," VanLandingham said.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/a...ocid=spartanntp

Yep, Trump was for putting Bergdahl in jail, so the judge considered that a reason to let him go.

Of course he may get off completely because:

"A dishonorable discharge triggers an automatic appeal to a higher military court."

Trump should have Bergdahl arrested and sent to GITMO. The Colonel/Judge should be relieved of duty and discharged. What a load of crap! Allowing that traitor to walk is a finger to the eye of all those who have and will serve honorably.

It appears as if the judge let him walk because Trump was against him.

This case may fly under the radar as time goes along.

He has an automatic appeal and his plea of "schizotypal personality disorder" is already on the books.

For the judge to admit Trump's words would be a consideration in the punishment decision is looney.

Army to Determine Whether Bergdahl Is Owed Back Pay for Time in Captivity
Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl could be entitled to more than $300,000 in back pay from the five-plus years he spent in Taliban captivity in Afghanistan.
From the moment Bergdahl was captured in 2009, he became eligible for extra compensation available to captured troops, the Army Times reported.

http://freebeacon.com/politics/army...time-captivity/

Being they accepted "schizotypal personality disorder" as an excuse, I don't see how they can deny him the cash.

When I was in basic in 1967 (or was it 1867?), we were told the "General Orders" were reduced from 11 to 3 because the recruits in 1967 were so much dumber than the WWII soldiers.

I keep hearing recruiting for the Army is getting harder and harder.
Army lifts ban on recruits with mental health history

WASHINGTON — People with a history of “self-mutilation,” bipolar disorder, depression and drug and alcohol abuse can now seek waivers to join the Army under an unannounced policy enacted in August, according to documents obtained by USA TODAY.

The decision to open Army recruiting to those with mental health conditions comes as the service faces the challenging goal of recruiting 80,000 new soldiers through September 2018. To meet last year's goal of 69,000, the Army accepted more recruits who fared poorly on aptitude tests, increased the number of waivers granted for marijuana use and offered hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses.

Lowering the standards for our Army means more potential Bergdahl cases in the future.

If we can't maintain a large "ready" fighting force, should we reconsider our role as a world wide police force?

Before I even read down to the article you posted, I was thinking I just heard that.....the lowering of "mental standards".

Because they can't meet recruitment goals?

All the BS that I see on TV, etc.....by politicians and generals is that "this volunteer army is the best we've ever had"....blah, blah, blah.

And then, not advertised as much is they're seeing gang tattoos, etc. within the ranks.

No wonder DARPA is working on replacing these people with robots....LOL
