Bowe Bergdahl’s Attorney Wants Him Awarded with POW Medal

Bowe Bergdahl was a deserter.

Even the Obama administration knew that Bergdahl, was planning on “going over to the other side” when he deserted.

A military investigation discovered that Bergdahl was hoping to escape to Uzbekistan and then to Russia.

At least six US heroes and as many as 14 were lost looking for Bowe Bergdahl.

On Friday Military Judge Col. Jeffery Nance ruled Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will be dishonorably discharged and receive no prison sentence for endangering his fellow soliders after abandoning his post in Afghanistan.

Now Bergdahl’s lawyer wants his client awarded a POW medal for his time with the Taliban after he deserted his post in Afghanistan.

Military.com reported:

The lead defense attorney for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl said he wants him to receive the Prisoner of War medal.

His civilian lawyer, Eugene Fidell, on Friday said his client should be recognized for the five years he spent in Taliban captivity after deserting his post in Afghanistan, according to an article by USA Today.

“We have long felt he was entitled to the POW medal,” Fidell said, the newspaper reported.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Bergdahl’s defense team plans to push for the award as part of the process to appeal his dishonorable discharge.
