OUTRAGE=> 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.
Sadly these 6 heroes who were killed while looking for Bowe Bergdahl will not get any press today- during Bergdahl’s trial. pic.twitter.com/PUpR0GxChE

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.
Bergdahl may be entitled to $300,000 back pay for his time in Taliban captivity.
Fox News reports:
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.”
Fox News also reported that Bergdahl may not be eligible for back pay and that he actually owe the military money.
We have wounded veterans who aren’t receiving the medical care they need yet this traitor may be entitled to $300K in back pay when he deserted his post on his own volition? Where is the justice?!
Some of the reaction from patriots…
Are you kidding me? The white glove treatment this POS received is bad enough. More insults 2 those who died for him https://t.co/4bx22GqB0c

Utter nonsense. They need to figure out how to fix VA system and take care of homeless Vets with that money. He lost his rights when he deserted.

No back pay and no medals … he’s still a traitor.
