Beaudry Robert Bergdahl, accused of abandoning his post in Afghanistan in June 2009 and captured by Taliban-aligned Haqqani network forces, is facing life imprisonment. However, as part of a prisoner exchange deal between five senior Taliban prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay Detention Center and Beaudry Bergdahl’s release in May 2014.
Bergdahl did not enter a plea and did not specify his preference between bench or jury trial, nor speak directly with either judge nor any of the spectators while wearing his military dress uniform shaved-headed and wearing military dress. Instead, he was ordered to appear before a general court-martial which could result in life imprisonment.
Bergdahl was born March 28th 1986 in Sun Valley Idaho and joined the U.S. Army in 2006. After completing basic training and infantry school at Fort Benning Georgia he was assigned his first unit at Fort Richardson Alaska where he saw service in Iraq and Afghanistan subsequently receiving numerous medals and service ribbons including Army Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal Afghanistan Campaign Medal as well as Army Service Ribbon awards.
He holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from University of North Dakota. Additionally, he attended Joint Specialized Command and Staff College at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas and his lawyer Eugene Fidell noted his client as being dedicated, loyal, and honorable soldier who did not intend any harm against anyone.
Fidell noted that his client endured “unspeakable cruelty and humiliation” during his years in captivity, including months spent chained to bed and some time locked in cages. Although promoted twice while there (first to sergeant and then private first class), Bowe reportedly declined accepting either rank, preferring instead being addressed simply as Bowe.
Bergdahl was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety. According to military lawyers, Bergdahl should receive mental health treatment while in jail.
The trial will feature testimony from soldiers injured while searching for Bergdahl. If found guilty, these injured servicemembers could testify that they were forced to abandon their posts in dangerous environments due to Bergdahl’s actions – and may testify about them being responsible for their deaths. Military prosecutors have asked for 14-year sentence against him as his actions endangered national security; otherwise if found guilty he faces dishonorably discharge and up to life imprisonment without trial – although none has yet been charged with treason despite many lawmakers critics and White House critics calling for him to face justice and be charged with treason charges and trial results have come under scrutiny, with some even calling for him be given life imprisonment sentences!
