Bergdahl’s Lawyer Wants Bergdahl to Be Honored With the POW Medal

With Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl only receiving dishonorable discharge and being downgraded to private, instead of getting a prison time after pleading guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, many people feel his punishment was very light.

However, Bergdahl’s lawyer wants him to be honored with medals for his time as a captive and for the injuries he got from his captors. Eugene Fidell, the lawyer, also is asking for his dishonorable discharge to be overturned.

“We have long felt he was entitled to the POW medal,” he said.

The Prisoner of War medal is given to service member who, “while serving in any capacity with the U.S. Armed Forces, was taken prisoner and held captive after April 5, 1917.”

During the pre-trial hearing, his defense team stated that he should receive the POW medal and the Purple Heart. Army Lt. Col. Franklin Rosenblatt also believes that Bergdahl should get those awards, and not giving them to him might produce bias from potential jurors.

“We believe this is a prejudice and casts a semblance of guilt,” he said. “We encourage the government to correct that.”

Veterans believe that that Bergdahl not receiving any prison time was a huge failure of the justice system.

    That coward bastard should be in prison for desertion.! Because of him deserting his unit several good brave men died looking for his worthless coward ass.! There are thousands of good American men that have been told by the corrupt self serving politicians they were’nt good enough to wear the uniform. But that coward bastard was. I think NOT.! Justice was NOT served, PUT HIS ASS IN PRISON.!!!!!!!!!!

    For deserting his post and giving himself up to the enemy, he deserves medals?? I don’t freaking think so. He deserves at least 1 year in prison for each soldier killed or injured while trying to find and rescue him !! He doesn’t even deserve the rank of pvt E1. Lock his ass up !

    He went of his own choosing! Therefore he was not captured! He chose to go to our enemy! He said he was treated better than by our army. He deserves no metals for anything!
