A caller into Kim Petersen’s Atlanta radio show on Monday claims he saw recently released American POW Bowe Bergdahl desert his post.
“He walked off base … I was there when he walked off base,” said a caller identifying himself as “Ken,” on Newsradio 106-7.
“He walked off base, according to the post sentry, which was restricted.”
“Ken” said he was a retired senior officer with three Purple Hearts, who was stationed at the same base as Bergdahl in Afghanistan.
Bergdahl was released over the weekend as part of a prisoner swap with five Guantanamo prisoners, but questions have arisen surrounding the circumstances in which he was captured.
“I find this absolutely reprehensible that our government is spitting in my face and in the face of every soldier who doesn’t wake up on this side of the ground, as well as every future solider,” the caller said.
