Statement By the U.S. Central Command Commander on Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl

TAMPA, Fla. – Gen. Lloyd J. Austin III, U.S. Central Command commander, released the following statement today:

“Earlier today Army Sgt. Bowe M. Bergdahl was returned to U.S. forces in Afghanistan. His safe recovery has been a focus and priority for me and this command since his capture five years ago. I am grateful to our partners in Qatar for their efforts, and proud of the many dedicated U.S. service members, civilians, and federal agents who have worked tirelessly to bring Bowe home. We look forward to reuniting him with his family.”
