Ex-POW Bergdahl returns to military duty: US Army

The American soldier who was held captive by the Afghan Taliban for nearly five years, Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, is returning to active military duty after more than a month of counseling, the US Army said Monday.

"He will now return to regular duty within the command where he can contribute to the mission" at a base in Texas, the army said in a statement.
