The AP reports that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was held captive by the Taliban for almost five years before being freed in a prisoner exchange on May 31, is back on active duty at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston. Details on his job are not yet available. After being handed over to American forces in Afghanistan, Bergdahl was treated at a military facility in Germany before returning to the United States on June 13.
