Bowe Bergdahl returns home — to a long road ahead

(CNN) — Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the last American prisoner of war, returned home early Friday, his hero’s welcome supplanted by a controversial prisoner swap and his reputation tarnished byaccusations he was a deserter.

He arrived in San Antonio from a military hospital in Landstuhl, Germany, where he’d been recuperating since his release May 31in exchange for five Taliban figures held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The 28-year-old Bergdahl, the longest-held U.S. soldier since the Vietnam War, was taken to the San Antonio Military Medical Center.
