  US Army Deserter Bowe                       Bergdahl

 THE GOOD NEWS –

NBC News is reporting this morning that: “Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was held captive by enemy forces in Afghanistan for five years, will be charged with desertion, a senior defense officials tell NBC News. The officials say the charges could be referred within a week.”

Great!


THE BAD NEWS –

NBC also is reporting that  “While a court-martial could lead to imprisonment, defense and military officials tell NBC News it is likely Bergdahl would be given consideration for the 5 years he spent in captivity and be permitted to leave the Army with a “less than honorable discharge.”

No Prison Time?

 Say What ?
