Default Army to determine if Bergdahl is owed back pay for his time in captivity

Quote:
When Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl came home in 2014, he was potentially entitled to hundreds of thousands of dollars in pay that accumulated over five years while he was in Taliban captivity in Afghanistan.

Bergdahl was captured after walking off base on June 30, 2009, while deployed to Paktika province with 4th Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division. He pleaded guilty in October to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy. On Nov. 3, a military judge ruled Bergdahl would not serve any jail time but be dishonorably discharged from the Army and reduced in rank to private.

From the moment he was captured, Bergdahl became eligible for extra pays available to captive troops.

In total, along with his basic and deployment pay, he could be entitled to more than $300,000.

But the Army has not calculated that pay yet, a G-1 spokesman told Army Times, because the legal proceedings since his homecoming in 2014 have put that in limbo.

“Based upon the results of trial, the Army is reviewing Sgt. Bergdahl’s pay and allowances,” Lt. Col. Randy Taylor told Army Times. “His final pay and allowances will be determined in accordance with DoD policy and Army regulation.”

Those policies and regulations require the Army to wait for Gen. Robert Abrams, the commander of Army Forces Command and the convening authority in this case, to approve the sentence that was handed down to Bergdahl, an Army official, who was not authorized to speak on the record, told Army Times.

Somehow this mother ****er wasn't given the death penalty, nor was he given any jail time, despite deserting his post in a combat zone and risking the lies of dozens others.

Now, they have to decide whether or not we should pay this piece of shit for the time he spent in captivity, even though he was the one who walked off the job to begin with?

This country is so ****ed. We're weak, hollow, just like Rome before the collapse of their civilization.

Ditto.

Obama was licking his father's balls, while Trump called for the death penalty.

The difference is striking.

Didn't Manning get a free sex change surgery while in prison and then released? Nothing surprises me about American justice system anymore.

If he did do something, you'd be on here posting about how Trump is interfering with the judicial system.

Agenda noted.

Bergdahl better hide, because there's a bullet with his name on it. This guy is going to get murdered.
