• Bergdahl Platoon Member: ‘Finally, Justice Is Being Done’

    “Finally, some justice being done,” former Army Sgt. Josh Korder said Wednesday on CNN.

    Korder served with Bergdahl in Afghanistan, and is speaking out about the latest news that Bowe Bergdahl has formally been charged with desertion for leaving his platoon five years ago in Afghanistan and was held as a prisoner-of-war until last May.

    Korder was asked by CNN host John Berman for his thoughts on a possible sentence. Korder responded that Bergdahl should not be forgiven or get off with time served, a reference to the five years he spent in captivity, which some people believe should exonerate him.

    “His actions put him there,” he said.

    When asked about his reaction to President Obama’s news conference in the Rose Garden standing beside Bergdahl’s parents, Korder said, “I was shocked…That’s why we all kind of reacted in the way that we did to try to get the news out there right after that Rose Garden announcement.”
