Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will meet with military investigators about his 2009 disappearance from an Afghan army post that resulted in Bergdahl being captured by the Taliban.
His attorney said he expects his client to be interviewed by Maj. General Kenneth Dahl, a two star general.

An Army official confirms that the meeting is scheduled to take place next week. There is no confirmed date.

Bergdahl was freed by the Taliban in May in a debated exchange for five Taliban prisoners who were being held at the Army detention center in Guantanamo Bay. He is currently assigned to U.S. Army North headquarters in San Antonio.

An Army official said that before the questioning begins Bergdahl will be advised of his rights under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

An investigation in 2009 was conducted shortly after Bergdahl’s disappearance which determined that Bergdahl had walked off the Army base on his own, but could not determine his intent.

Dahl’s investigation is to expand on that earlier investigation to get Bergdahl’s side of the circumstances surrounding his disappearance.

The report will be presented to the director of the Army staff. If the report makes findings that could require disciplinary action it will be up to Bergdahl’s current command to follow through with those actions.

After going through a reintegration process that lasted six weeks Bergdahl returned to regular duty at U.S. Army North.

As of now Bergdahl has still not spoken to his parents.
