U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl is in stable condition at a military medical center in Texas. Speaking during an afternoon press conference, Colonel Ronald Wool said doctors are pleased with Bergdahl’s physical state. Members of his family are not with him. General Joseph DiSalvo said will be up to Bergdahl to decide when he feels comfortable reuniting with his family. Bergdahl was transferred from a U.S. military hospital in Europe after being released in a controversial prisoner exchange for five Taliban commanders. Bergdahl had been held by the Taliban for five years.

DiSalvo said Bergdahl looked good and seemed a little nervous when he arrived before dawn on Friday. Colonel Bradley Poppen noted that Bergdahl’s mental state is still being assessed. The Pentagon is investigating allegations that Bergdahl deserted his post in Afghanistan before being captured by the Taliban. DiSalvo said doctors are not dealing with that issue as part of a process of reintegration. Wool noted that reintegration is a slow process and Poppen said every case is different.
