After weeks of counseling, Bowe Bergdahl has returned to active duty, the Defense Department announced today, according to the AP. His exact duties haven't been disclosed yet, but according to the New York Times he'll live in barracks at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, where his therapy occurred. Two soldiers will work to help Bergdahl reacquaint himself with military life after his time as a Taliban prisoner. He will also meet with Maj. Gen. Kenneth Dahl, who's looking into his 2009 disappearance in Afghanistan. (Read more Pentagon stories.)
