(Newser) – Bowe Bergdahl has been shifted to outpatient care at a Texas military base, the US Army said last night. He arrived at the Brooke Army Medical Center at Fort Sam Houston on June 13 after nearly two weeks recuperating at a US military hospital in Germany. He is now receiving outpatient care on the base in San Antonio, according to the Army, which says his "reintegration process" is proceeding with exposure to more people and a gradual increase in social interaction.

The Army statement says Bergdahl, 28, is receiving counseling from "Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape" psychologists to "continue to ensure he progresses to the point where he can return to duty," and specifics of his location would not be made public. The Army said last week it is investigating Bergdahl's disappearance and capture, but investigators will not interview Bergdahl until those helping him recover say it is all right to do so.

Hey, Obozo, how about the Marine, who is not a traitor, who is sitting in a Mexican prison right now, getting some outpatient care?

What a Pu55y. Lucky for him he wasn't a Vietnam POW.
