The soldier the Taliban captured nearly five years ago is back in the United States.

FOX News Radio's Jared Halpern reports from Washington:

Early this morning Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdhal landed in Texas. He's now continuing what the Pentagon calls the reintegration process at the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio.

His arrival back in the States coming two weeks after a prisoner-swap with the Taliban secured his release. He was initially flown to a U.S. military hospital in Germany.

While the focus, up to this point, is on Sergeant Bergdahl's health and well being, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel this week told lawmakers the Pentagon is reviewing the events that led to Bergdahl's capture.

"On behalf of the Bergdahl Family: While the Bergdahls are overjoyed that their son has returned to the United States, Mr. and Mrs. Bergdahl don't intend to make any travel plans public. They ask for continued privacy as they concentrate on their son's reintegration."
