Bergdahl Update: He’s back in U.S., wants peanut butter

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl arrive in Texas Friday on an early morning flight.  He is being treated at a Texas military hospital.

(Reuters) – U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, who spent five years as a Taliban prisoner of war before being released on May 31, was in stable condition at a military hospital in Texas and has not yet met with his parents, military officials said on Friday.

“What we are trying to do is get him to recognize that the coping skills he used to survive this long, five-year ordeal may not be healthy and functional now,” Colonel Bradley Poppen, an Army psychologist, told a news conference held near the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio where Bergdahl will receive care.

Bergdahl has had one request when it comes to food, military officials said – peanut butter.

Neighbors from his hometown are standing by him.

“We’re still standing with Bowe,” said Sue Martin, owner of Zaney’s River Street Coffee House, where Bergdahl worked before enlisting.

“He has the personal insight and the intelligence to be able to address this long period of healing,” she said.
