    He was a PFC, they promoted him to SGT while he was a prisoner. Seems like the more that comes out about this the worse it gets.

    "According to firsthand accounts from soldiers in his platoon, Bergdahl, while on guard duty, shed his weapons and walked off the observation post with nothing more than a compass, a knife, water, a digital camera and a diary."

    Yep. It's a bad deal.

    But if this is the new policy, then maybe we can trade about 12 million illegal aliens for the Marine that's being abused in a Mexican jail right now.

    Mexico would have to want them back, to make the trade.... Right?

    I don't know. Do we want an America-hating deserter back?

    If what I've read is true concerning this gentlemen's actions and how he was apprehended by the Taliban then he surely doesn't deserve a hero's welcome in my book. I've served myself and at times I wasn't happy with decisions that were made above me but I wouldn't have ever vacated my post and wandered off in the night while watching over my brothers. The decisions this administration makes really concerns me and the direction the country is heading.. Just my two cents. Come on deer season.

    No matter what was stated in the media or how it is portrayed - you are still dealing with an 18 year old trying to make grown up decisions. I served, got my diploma from Uncle Sam etc.. It seems more of political cover for the atrocious way that Veterans are being treated at home. The guy has been there right or wrong for all this time and now he gets rescued by a trade? Come on - We have one pow and we cant find him? We have much better technology than that.
