Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, former POW takes the next step in his recovery.

FOX News Radio's Jeff Monosso reports:

The Army says Bowe Bergdahl has been released to outpatient care at a medical base in San Antonio, Texas where his reintegration process slowly continues, with more exposure to more people and a gradual increase of social interactions. This, less than one month after Bergdahl was freed in Afghanistan after five years, in exchange for five senior Taliban officials in a deal with the Obama administration. Bergdahl's fellow soldiers say he deserted in 2009. The military is investigating.
