Bowe Bergdahl Refuses To Speak To His Parents: Report
Posted: 07/15/2014 11:14 am EDT Updated: 10 minutes ago

WASHINGTON -- Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has refused to see his parents or talk to them on the phone since he was released from captivity in Pakistan, the Wall Street Journal is reporting.

Bergdahl had been held captive by the Haqqani Network for five years before he was released to U.S. Special Forces in May as part of a prisoner swap. Under that deal, Bergdahl was set free in exchange for the release of five Taliban detainees at Guantanamo Bay. Bergdahl's parents stood next to President Barack Obama during his announcement of Bergdahl's release -- Berdahl's father sporting a long beard he began growing when his son went missing in 2009.

Despite the White House hailing Bergdahl's release as a victory, the matter became embroiled in controversy as lawmakers complained they weren't given sufficient notice of the planned swap and warned of national security risks of releasing leading Taliban figures. In the meantime, former members of Bergdahl's platoon tagged him as a deserter perhaps not worthy of being rescued.

Bergdhal returned to active duty on Monday after finishing his therapy at a military hospital in San Antonio.

This whole thing is weird.  Bowe is weird and his father is REALLY weird!  Wasn't there some story about his father being a peeping tom?

Sgt. Bergdahl has chosen not to speak his parents, Bob and Jani Bergdahl, since his release May 31
Will resume his military duties at Fort Sam Houston, San Antonio, Monday with an 'office job'
He will also have sponsor to help with assimilating
Bergdahl may also receive $350,000 from the US government without paying taxes
$200,000 worth of that money would be from wages earned during his captivity and $150,000 if he is found to have been a prisoner of war
Bergdahl will continue to attend debriefing sessions with his superiors
