If I were a family member of any of those involved in trying to find him, I would file a lawsuit right now. This scumbag doesn't deserve one red cent. :death:

Deserter Bowe Bergdahl May Receive $300,000 in Back Pay

Bowe Bergdahl was a deserter.

Even the Obama administration knew that Bergdahl, was planning on “going over to the other side” when he deserted.

A military investigation discovered that Bergdahl was hoping to escape to Uzbekistan and then to Russia.

At least six US heroes and as many as 14 were lost looking for Bowe Bergdahl.

Last Friday, Military Judge Col. Jeffery Nance ruled Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will be dishonorably discharged and receive no prison sentence for endangering his fellow soliders after abandoning his post in Afghanistan.

Bergdahl’s lawyer said his client should be awarded a POW medal for his time with the Taliban after he deserted his post in Afghanistan.

Now this…

Bergdahl may be entitled to $300,000 back pay for his time in Taliban captivity.

Fox News reports: (http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/11/09/us-army-to-decide-if-bergdahl-entitled-to-300g-back-pay.html)

The U.S. Army is set to decide whether Pvt. Bowe Bergdahl is entitled to as much as $300,000 in back pay and other benefits he amassed during his captivity with the Taliban.

[…]
Captive soldiers normally receive special compensation worth around $150,000 in addition to hostile-fire pay and their basic pay they accumulated during the captivity. But determining whether Bergdahl should receive the back pay is not as clear-cut.

But Bergdahl pleaded guilty to desertion in court, complicating whether the army will consider him as a prisoner of war and thus entitled to back pay and compensation.

“My understanding is there has to be an administrative determination of his duty status at each point, from the time he was captured until now,” an army official told the Army Times. “In order to figure out what he’s owed, you’re basically going to have to start from that point of captivity.”

I think this whole thing is Obama's fault.

His characterization of service on his DD-214 should be "Dishonorable", and his reenlistment code RE-4 (undesirable).

Fuck his medal. He wouldn't have been a POW if he hadn't have handed his own ass over. Best not be planning on hanging out down at the local VFW either. PMSNBC may hire his worthless ass, but his name is STILL mud with vets.
