This case is very strange. How did it go this far?
Check it out:

Some veterans and soldiers who served with Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl call him a deserter whose “selfish act” ended up costing the lives of better men, not a hero. Former Sergeant Matt Vierkant, a member of Bergdahl’s platoon when he went missing on June 30, 2009 said, “I was pissed off then and I am even more so now with everything going on. Bowe Bergdahl deserted during a time of war and his fellow Americans lost their lives searching for him.” Vierkant said Bergdahl needs to not only acknowledge his actions publicly but face a military trial for desertion under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
