Former Idaho POW Bergdahl Continues Recovery In Outpatient Care

The U.S. Army says Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has been released from inpatient care at Brooke Army Medical Center in Texas.

A statement Sunday from the Army says the former prisoner of war in Afghanistan is now receiving outpatient care at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio. The Army says his "reintegration process" is proceeding with exposure to more people and a gradual increase of social interactions.

The Idaho native was captured in June 2009 and freed by the Taliban on May 31 in a deal struck by the Obama administration in which five senior Taliban officials were released from detention at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The Army said last week it's investigating Bergdahl's disappearance and capture. It says investigators won't interview Bergdahl until those helping him recover say it's all right.
